Description Mark 2005-12-13 22:52:35 UTC
The Divehi Wikipedia should be Right-to-Left (like,,,,

There are already Wikipedians in the Maldives who are more 
than ready to get started on this Wikipedia, however, 
since it is currently situated from Left-to-Right, work 
has been much slower than they would like and so far only 
a handful of pages have been created.

The entire site displays incorrectly. Somebody, please 
change the directionality of so they can start 
work on a free, neutral encyclopaedia usable to all 
Maldivians and Dhivehi speakers worldwide.

On a side note, a handful of other WPs need directionality

Comment 1 Mark 2005-12-14 01:34:41 UTC
Changed to "major" because it makes 
that Wikipedia virtually unusable, when 
there are people who are very much 
ready to jump in.

Need to create dummy language files.

Thanks for the report.

The bug is now fixed in HEAD and rel 1.5. It will be in 1.5.4. I am also
updating wikimedia cluster.
