I do envision that the incubator wiki creation will be
a mostly automatic
process. There is no good reason for it to require any
from Ops engineer, as it happens now. There should be a simple form
somewhere on one of our other wikis, probably Meta or wikitech.wikimedia.org
where one will have to fill project family (pedia, voyage, etc.),
language code, autonym, text direction, logo file name—and push a button.
The interesting question is who should have the permission to fill this
form and push the button. My immediate thought is "language committee
members", of course, but other ideas are welcome.
Right now, both members of the global group "New wikis importers" are also
LangCom members (MF-Warburg and SPQRobin). But I think in principle anyone in that group,
even if not on LangCom, could appropriately do this. (Beyond that, it might depend on just
what the criteria are for someone to make a valid request for an incubation subdomain. But
that's a discussion for another time.)
Have I mentioned how much do I appreciate what you do
there? It's truly
wonderful that you are taking care of this backlog.
As they say where you come from ... בבקשה!
