Description Sukh 2005-02-16 15:25:59 UTC

Can the name for Punjabi be changed from "पंजाबी / ਪਜਾਬੀ / پنجابي" to "ਪੰਜਾਬੀ". 
At the moment it's incorrect and unneccesarily excessive.

This patch against CVS HEAD fixes the issue.

Just checked that in an HTML document and it seems fine thanks.  Now if only I
could get someone to tell me what I need to sort out for the Punjab interface

For those wondering why there were so many different names there from the
beginning of, the diff is here:

I'll vouch for this change although another script (Arab?) is also used here:
Comment 4 Sukh 2005-03-02 13:11:39 UTC
Well Punjabi can be written in modified Persian script (Shahmukhi) but as of yet
nobody has made a single contribution in the script at all.  Basically, it's
used in Pakistan when writing Punjabi but its use has been discouraged over the
last 50 years in favour of Urdu.  99% of Punjabi online is in Gurmukhi.

It could be added later if anyone wants to set up a Wikipedia in that script,
but I can't see it happening.  We certainly don't need the Devanagari version.

Can someone commit this?
Comment 6 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-03-04 12:51:05 UTC
Commited to REL1_4 and HEAD. Thanks for the report and patch :o)
Comment 7 Sukh 2005-03-09 03:20:17 UTC
This hasn't been properly addressed.  The text has been changed to "ਪਜਾਬੀ" which
is incorrect.  It needs to be "ਪੰਜਾਬੀ".  Please notice the 'tippi' after the
first character.  As it stands the text says "Pajabi".  It needs to say
"Panjabi" or "Punjabi" (i.e. "ਪੰਜਾਬੀ").

The patch against languages/Names.php

Pajabi => Punjabi, i.e. "ਪਜਾਬੀ" =>"ਪੰਜਾਬੀ".
