submitted verification final decision
This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

Since its opening in late December 2006, only one user has expressed interest in editing, there has been very little discussion on this page, and no test project has been developed. Unfortunately, we do not believe that this project is ready for its own wiki yet. However, all Wikisource content with no subdomain is permanently accepted on the multilingual Wikisource until they are moved elsewhere, and users are free to make a new request once they have gathered an editing community. —{admin} Pathoschild 17:55:15, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
