Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.

Behind side-altars of this project (in Russian) there are many attempts to develop similar projects. At them one problem - a different local site, lack of information of participants on them. As consequence - not stability of such local projects. Many participants prefer to wait while the project becomes stable. I consider that opening of Russian section will involve participants from the local projects and will allow them to unite efforts. SergeyJ 14:18, 28 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • Support, In betawikiversity since middle-2006, the project is staying alive with some contributors. While it is not yet ready to be independent, but it remains on track and should therefore be monitored. The i18n reach the perfect rate since a long time.

  • Support, Very active test project in beta. I am sure they can get the approval.--ZaDiak 13:25, 28 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support, Active development of Russian Wikipedia and sister projects, growing interest of russian-speakers causes reasonability of opening Russian Wikiversity Plest 16:48, 11 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]
