Please could the project namespace for the Tajik Wikipedia (tg.) be changed from
"Wikipedia" to "Википедиа".
Please provide the desired project talk namespace name and link to the
discussion where this was agreed upon.

1. The talk namespace is already specified in the language file. We only have to
set $wgMetaNamespace, not to set the talk namespace. It is not a custom
namespace after all.
2. Such change is obvious - see [[tg:Special:Allpages]], where all the
namespaces are translated except for this one.
I'm afraid it wasn't put up for discussion. The spelling "Википедиа" appears in
the logo of the project, and although an alternate spelling, "Википедия", would
be possible, I discussed this with [[:tg:User:Ibrahim]] (the other regular
contributor -- and a native speaker of Tajik) and he said that the first
spelling is better. The spelling "Википедиа" also appears on our article for the
encyclopaedia, see "http://tg.wikipedia.org/wiki/Википедиа".
If it is necessary to have a vote, I would be happy to organise one, but I think
that this is quite a simple, obvious change.
Just asking for completeness. Better to answer a couple of stupid questions
than to have to wait days extra because Brion or whoever wasn't willing to
institute your changes due to incomplete information.

I wasn't sure whether talk namespaces could be autogenerated from the project
name or not, given the variety of human languages.
Namespace set, no conflicts. Rebuilding link tables. Note some links will have to be updated
on the wiki as the old ones will no longer work.
