Language committee (Status of the Gan Wikipedia)
This page tracks the status of the Gan (贛語) Wikipedia request. It is unofficial, and does not necessarily predict committee decisions. This page was last updated 06 March 2008; you can request an update on Talk:Language committee.


The following criteria for final approval must be met before the wiki can be created. Criteria that are crossed out with a black box have been satisfied.

  • Criteria for eligibility
    check that the project does not already exist (see list).
    obtain an ISO 639 code (gan).
    ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
    ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language. (For constructed languages, there must be sufficient recognition as determined by discussion.)
  • Criteria for final approval
    develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
    complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, recent translations):
    most-used MediaWiki messages (list untranslated);
    all MediaWiki messages (list untranslated, optional for the first wiki in a language);
    main extensions used by Wikimedia Foundation wikis (list untranslated, optional for the first wiki in a language).
  • Approval process
    verify test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert (only for the first wiki in a language).
    approval by the committee.
    notify Board of Trustees for possible veto.
    final approval.
