I am a little bit confused, please allow a few question:

1. With your patch in bug 9599 you added the fallback language 'hi'. Is the
removal correct?

2. Changing already translated namespace names breaks existing links. Are the
former translations wrong or should we add them as alias?

3. 'january-gen' - 'december-gen' and 'jan' - 'dec' are not translated in your
Comment 3 sivakalyan.princeton 2007-04-21 14:42:03 UTC
1. The removal is correct. At first I thought that, for consistency of script, 
the fallback language should be Hindi. Then I realized that since many users of 
the Sanskrit Wikipedia (including myself) do not speak Hindi, the fallback 
language is best left as English. 
2. The former namespace translations were wrong. Also, since they have not been 
in effect vor very long, broken links should not be much of a problem 
(especially since the Sanskrit Wikipedia is relatively inactive). 
3. I will get to those in the next patch.

Thank for your explanations. I have applied your patch with r21486 with
exception of the still english messages.
