Requests for new languages/Wikisource Burmese

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
submitted verification final decision

This proposal has been approved.
The Board of Trustees and language committee have deemed that there is sufficient grounds and community to create the new language project.

A committee member provided the following comment:

Until a separate Wikisource is created, please add texts at oldwikisource:Main Page/မြန်မာဘာသာ. Antony D. Green (talk) 22:24, 21 April 2017 (UTC) Approved on 2024-03-27, phabricator:T361085. --MF-W 09:16, 27 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics). 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.
  • The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
  • The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:
What Value Example / Explanation
Language code my (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Burmese Language name in English
Language name မြန်မာဘာသာ Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item Q9228 - item has currently the following values:
Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.
Directionality LTR Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.

Project name ဝီကီရင်းမြစ် "Wikisource" in your language
Project namespace ဝီကီရင်းမြစ် usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace ဝီကီရင်းမြစ်_ဆွေးနွေးချက် "Wikisource talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:Wikisource-logo-my.svg This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone Asia/Yangon "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces "စာရေးသူ" (Author), "စာရေးသူ ဆွေးနွေးချက်" (Author talk), "စာမျက်နှာ" (Page), "စာမျက်နှာ ဆွေးနွေးချက်" (Page talk), "အညွှန်း" (Index), "အညွှန်း ဆွေးနွေးချက်" (Index talk), "မုခ်ဝ" (Portal), "မုခ်ဝ ဆွေးနွေးချက်" (Portal talk), "ဘာသာပြန်" (Translation), "ဘာသာပြန် ဆွေးနွေးချက်" (Translation talk) For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit Phabricator task. It will include everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings. After creating the task, add a link to the comment.



Hello. "Enable uploads = admin" has been chosen. Could you indicate where the Exemption Doctrine policy is to be found (see the table for more information)? --MF-W 13:45, 24 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Tejinda, Ninjastrikers and Team.blizzard any ideas on this question which affects the local uploading function? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:36, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Liuxinyu970226, @MF-Warburg; The local upload can be disable since we are not prepare EDP for Wikisource yet. We will discuss it later. Thanks! NinjaStrikers «» 14:32, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
