This language has been verified as eligible. The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approvaland will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.
The community needs to 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.

Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin"). Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
Support: I can't find a single site on the internet written in Brahui. Wikipedia will be the first, and therefore provide a much needed area for the preservation of this peculiar language. --220.127.116.11 11:13, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Support: Native speakers of Brahui have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Brahui language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wikipedia along with the existing Dravidian languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. --Jose77 02:10, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Support: Have recently gained attention (User:Bangulzai & User:Imdadb are creating articles and traslating the interface pretty well).--Kanon6996 17:29, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Support Incubator has many voluminous and goodly formatted articles. --ɴõɴəχүsƚ 10:04, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Support I being a Pakistani language Wikipedias Administrator strongly recommend the project of Brahui Language Wikipedia and offer my services for this project. But I point out that the vast majority of Brahui use the Perso-arabic script to write their language.--Rehmat Aziz Chitrali Editor Khowar Wikipedia 10:04, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
No start has been made with the compulsory localisation of the "most often used" messages at translatewiki.net. Thanks, GerardM 11:25, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Brahui can be written in the Arabic script (but difficult to type on keyboard) and the Latin script. Nevertheless, if these statements by native Brahui speakers are true, then perhaps the Latin script would be more convenient. Should both scripts be localised or just the latin one? --Jose77 07:55, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
@Jose77: Brahui books are available in arabic script. There is no difficulty in typing Brahui in arabic script as one imminent linguist and keyboard expert namely Rehmat Aziz Chitrali has invented a multi-language text editor that can be used to type in as many as 40 languages (including brahui) of Pakistan at a single plateform free of cost. The brahui letters are the same like Urdu letter but one letter i.e. ݪ is unique character which is available in the software of Rehmat Aziz Chitrali --Mirajbibi (talk) 16:43, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
