Hi,A question for the respected language code experts in the audience.Apparently, the Simple English Wikipedia uses "en" as its language code in the HTML lang attribute, etc.I never noticed it until recently, when it started causing various bugs with the ContentTranslation extension of which I am a developer. I somehow assumed that it uses something like "en-simple" without ever checking it, and that assumption was wrong - it's just "en".I believe that the code should be different from what is used by the English Wikipedia, like it is with other wikis in language variants, such as be-tarask.
Do you have any suggestions about what code should it be?
Should I register anything new with any standards organization? (If I recall correctly, this was done for be-tarask?)Can I reuse any existing code that would be appropriate?Is it a bad idea in general and it should be just "en"?Thanks!(PS: If you're curious what are the issues, see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T110190 )
