Description MF-Warburg 2012-12-14 15:48:38 UTC
The language committee and WMF Board have approved the creation of Wikisource Assamese.

Language code: as
Site URL:
Project name: ৱিকিউৎস
Project namespace: ৱিকিউৎস
Project talk namespace: ৱিকিউৎস বাৰ্তা
Project logo: or
Timezone: Asia/Kolkata

Translations of the special namespace names which the Wikisource extension ProofreadPage creates are: Page = পৃষ্ঠা, Page talk = পৃষ্ঠা আলোচনা, Index = সূচী, Index talk = সূচী আলোচনা

Thank you.

Three more configuration questions:

1. Do you want to disable TranslateNumerals (see bug 31371)?
2. Do you wish to enable Narayam, to offer users an additional input method? This could be tested on as.wikipedia.
3. Do you wish to enable WeFonts, to ease assamese alphabet rendering?
Comment 2 Dereckson 2012-12-14 22:00:13 UTC
Some more, wikisource-related:

4a. Should Page namespace be included in default search?
4b. Should Index namespace be included in default search?

5a. Should Page namespace be considered as a content namespace? Virtually all other wikisources include it.
5b. Should Index namespace be considered as a content namespace? Most other wikisources include it too. Some considers indexes are metadata and so choose not to.

A content namespace is a namespace:
- with pages included in wiki articles count
- with pages being returnable by [[Special:Random]]
- without the possibility to set __NOINDEX__ to avoid browser indexing.

In my opinion:

1. We need not to disable TranslateNumerals.
2. Yes, I wish to enable Narayam.
3. Yes, I want to enable WebFonts, to ease assamese alphabet rendering.

@Dereckson: I have created a patch to make Proofread Page directly create page and index namespaces for this future as Wikisource. The ids are 250 for page and 252 for index. So it won't be needed to create theses namespaces in the wiki configuration.
Comment 6 Dereckson 2012-12-17 21:44:12 UTC
To keep indexes harmonization, we'll keep the growing wikisource standard 104/106, especially as there is still not global variables as NS_PAGE or NS_INDEX.

A discussion on IRC highlighted the fact at one moment it could be interesting to in renumber namespaces from every wiki in batch to harmonize the standard namespaces imagined by the community.
