Description Cary Bass 2007-08-13 19:58:45 UTC
Please create Bengali Wikisource, the wiki has been requested on
and approved by the language committee. Thank you.
Comment 1 khan muhammad 2007-08-16 21:03:40 UTC
Please accept the bug requests as we are waiting with much resources in hand to. We really want to contribute in this wikisource regularly. Waiting for that time.
Comment 2 Casey Brown 2007-08-16 21:05:19 UTC
There are tons of shell requests waiting... :-(
Comment 3 Aditya Kabir 2007-08-17 07:02:41 UTC
Sorry for the waiting shell requests, but Bengali Wikisource is really important.
Comment 4 Tarif Ezaz 2007-08-17 15:17:38 UTC
Please allow us to make a difference. Give us the Bengali WikiSource.  
Comment 5 Belayet Hossain 2007-08-17 16:11:53 UTC
Though we are contributing at But really we need the Bengali Wikisource for the promotion of the project.
Comment 6 Casey Brown 2007-08-17 17:25:17 UTC
Ummmm.... *sigh* the developers will do it... they won't not open a project that has been officially approved by LangCom.  But be patient, there is a lot of other stuff that needs to be done first.  The only reason I commented that there was a bunch of other shell requests waiting was because you were already not showing patience. :-D  I am waiting for a few shell requests too, just be patient.
Comment 7 Aditya Kabir 2007-08-18 03:30:57 UTC
oh! sorry about the impatience. that came partly for not knowing the process clearly. thanks.
Comment 8 Casey Brown 2007-08-18 15:31:31 UTC
I had just wanted to tell you that the fact the bug is taking a while is not because the developers aren't giving you a chance or that Bengali Wikisource isn't a good idea for a wiki.  It's just that they're busy in other areas and that it might take them a while to do all of the waiting shell requests. :-(  I feel your impatience though, I am waiting for a few myself (as I sated elsewhere).
Comment 9 Belayet Hossain 2007-09-18 06:16:48 UTC
Developers are taking too much time.:-(
Comment 10 Ragib Hasan 2007-09-19 06:13:19 UTC
Any updates on this? Wikisource is getting a lot of Bengali language content, so getting the sub-domain would have helped us publicize it in the media, and thereby attract more volunteers. After all, Bengali is the 4th (or 7th, depending on how you count) largest language of the world ... with 250 million + native speakers.

The wiki has been created.
