There's a new request for Pannonian Rusyn, also known as Southern Ruthenian
or Rusnak at
(I gave User:Keresturec technical help with creating the page, but the
request is his.)
The previous one was rejected, because there already was another language
called Rusyn with the code rue. There are two languages with this name, one
mostly spoken in Ukraine and Slovakia, and another one spoken in Serbia and
In 2022, the new code "rsk" was approved for the one spoken in Serbia and
Croatia. The PDFs here are quite interesting:
They make a convincing case that:
* The language is distinct, and is not a dialect of Serbian or of
* The language is small, but developed and active. It has stable
orthography, and is used in book publishing, education, government, and
I therefore recommend marking that request as eligible.
Creating the Incubator in this language is also blocked by AbuseFilter. I
asked about this on
and MF-Warburg suggested going through the request on Meta.

Here's the newest iteration of the request <
which I take it is obviously getting rejected.
At this opportunity, I wonder whether we should implement some limitation
(e.g. via Titleblacklist) against creating request no. 2, 3, 4, 5 without
discussing it with Langcom first. It's a bit pointless to reject requests
over and over again, just because people don't accept the policy and create
a new one. Meanwhile, if for example a language was previously rejected but
has now been recognized in ISO 639-3, that can be easily signalled and a
new request created.
