Meadow Mari  is a Finnic language spoken in Russia. All
project-related requirements are fulfilled , including verification
that Incubator project  is written in that language.
As they have a major event at July 10th , it would be really good
to give them Wikipedia until that date. So, please make the project

the issue and to create the project ASAP.
The Wikimedia Foundation  has received a request for a new Wikipedia in
the Acehnese language.
A group of volunteers have worked hard to provide enough content for it to
In the past we used to trust the language to be what it was said to be, but
sadly this trust was abused.
It is for this reason that I ask your cooperation.
We have been informed that you are able to give us an objective assessment
of the language used. We would like you to answer two questions.
Can you confirm that the texts  are written in the Acehnese language,

Generally, I support such project requests: If it is about a large
language group which doesn't have good Internet access (like in Sorani
case), it will be changed in the future. If it is about a sustainable
smaller group (like in Mari case), the level of involvement won't be
much higher, but Wikipedia will have an important place in preserving
their language and culture. (I am just against wasting efforts of very
small language groups on Wikipedia.)
