Merging projects

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Possible merger proposals that have been mentioned at least once before.

This is NOT currently an official process, and does not have approval from Langcom. This page merely keeps track of previous discussions related to merging projects. Some of these could, in the future, go through the official LangCom project closure process.
