2011 report[edit]

MF-Warburg wrote a relevant report for the year 2011, see incubator:Incubator:News/2011 report.


  • The Wikipedia in Veps (a Uralic language spoken by about 6,000 people) has been created.
  • The Wiktionary in Punjabi (in Shahmukhi script) has been created.
  • The Wikisource in Marathi has been created. There is a bit of content on the OldWikisource (that still needs to be transferred). However, the Maharashtra Government has promised to provide free content for the Marathi Wikisource.
  • The Wikipedia in Lezgian (a Northeast Caucasian language spoken by about 784,000 people) is approved by the committee.


  • Some discussion about the Belarusian Wikisource request. It is very active, but the issue is that it be in both the official and Taraskevica orthography.
  • There is a request for a Wikiquote in Oriya/Odia, however there is concern about the language/orthography used on Oriya projects.
