Thank you for your step-by-step guidance & links, which I communicated to respective community.
I recommended Ingush guys to concentrate on the missing core translations, then email LangCom a list with contact details of a few respected Ingush language or cultural centers.
With kind regards on behalf of

If I interpret the linked requirement checks correctly, the activity requirement is fulfilled but there are still untranslated messages. Also, as mentioned on the request page , "Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval, will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto." The video link which you provide cannot substitute the verification by a reliable neutral source (i.e. we need to find someone who is not linked to your wikipedia project and not suggested by you!). If Amir is aware of the situation, he may want to suggest a scholar with verification capability credentials. I'm sorry to hear about your impatience.
