There are several projects where there are groups fighting each other
because their project was envisioned to be only about one specific
orthography or script. It is in my opinion much better to solve these issues
first and be sure that there will be no such fight in the future.

Many people are in favour of adding Gilaki to the list of languages..
is one issue outstanding as far as I am
concerned. At WiktionaryZ the
templates are in an Arabic script.. The first
Gilaki word however is in
the Latin and this Arabic script.
Another issue is that the language is called Gilaki and only Wikipedia
it Gileki ..
It would be nice to have these issues resolved first..
Couldn't we create it first and resolve the issues later? Unless you are
suggesting that the existence of these issues implies that the proposers
don't know anything about the language, I don't see any problem with
changing either the default text direction or the language name after the
wiki is created.
