For the record, I'm fine with adding these. However I believe the correct language code for Kalinago is crbcar is a different, though related, living language spoken in mainland South American countries, while crb was spoken in Caribbean islands just like Taíno.

jhsoby updated subscribers of T236593: Cannot enter multiple forms for the same language variant.

I was sitting next to @Lucas_Werkmeister_WMDE right now, and he told me that we can use the same solution that is used for the plurals of English octopus, which is to add the different spellings as new forms with the same grammatical categories. However, this feel very counter-intuitive to me: I feel like the different spelling variants are what should have different forms, and then the various spellings in the same spelling variant should go together in the same form.

jhsoby added a comment to T235739: Create Mon Wikipedia.

Just a heads-up: The last wiki created, banwiki, has had issues with imported pages not showing up in categories. A null edit fixes the problem for each affected page. This seems to suggest that importing was done before the wiki was properly configured to recognize the local prefix "Kategori:" as equivalent to "Category:". If this is the case, we should be careful to prevent this from happening again with mnwwiki (and in the future).

I don't like the idea of "figure out later". It just piles more unplanned work on us (or worse, mess is left behind). Let's make a proper plan and get it resourced.

jhsoby added a comment to T174601: Change the language codes of Sakizaya from "ais" (retired by SIL) to "szy" everywhere, and add it to Names.php.

I was chatting with @Nikerabbit and @Raymond about this yesterday in #mediawiki-i18n. My proposed action plan in order to move this language from ais to szy is as follows:

  1. Disable translations into ais.
  2. Enable translation into szy.
  3. Move all existing /ais messages on Translatewiki to /szy by bot.
    1. This will duplicate everything to szy.json files, but will have no effect on the ais.json files. As Niklas mentioned, this will lead to the content from ais.json files being imported back into Translatewiki from the still-existing ais.json files. However, if translating into ais is disabled on Translatewiki, I don't think this will be a significant problem (and it shouldn't be a blocker). Yes, there will exist duplicate pages, but they can't really be changed (perhaps by editing by hand, but not via Special:Translate), so there is no real danger of conflicting edits.
  4. Then figure out what and how to do anything with the ais.json files.

The most important thing here is to get the szy.json files up and running, so I think this should suffice as first steps.
