Just a detail:
.ml (Malayalam) is not “Malaysian” (the code for Malay language is .ms)

Malayalam is a dravidian language, spoken in Indian state of Kerala, far from
Malaysia (and also by some persons in Singapore, not far from Malaysia) and uses
a specific alphabet (where Malay language is using latin alphabet or Jawi alphabet).

Comment 2 Jimmy Collins 2006-10-27 16:05:00 UTC
Missing languages have been added to Names.php in r17267.
Comment 3 River Tarnell 2007-05-06 19:10:33 UTC
all old approved new languages have been unapproved following the creation of 
langcom.  please re-do the request there (
Requests_for_new_languages) then re-open this bug.

(if they've already been approved, please provide a URL to the langcom 
decision.  kaz has already been created.)
