So... which developer actually created these? te.ws was approved with
just two supporters, if that archive page is correct. There are other
similarly lowlyy-supported requests.
I mean the dev's must feel a bit damned-if-they-do,
damned-if-they-don't, no creations for so long and people complain,
then a whole bunch and people still complain.... but I'm sure there's
*some* kind of standard minimum requirement, right?
If there is, it's on the side of the developers (or similar
powers-that-be). I'm not aware of any official Wikisource policy that
dictates when a new language has enough support.
In order to start a new language edition, requests for that
language must meet one of the following three criteria:
1. At least one experienced contributor at wikisource.org
experienced contributor is someone who has been a logged-in user
for at least two months, with at least 250
2. At least two experienced contributors at other Wikimedia
projects in the specified language. In other words, two
different users, each of whom has been logged-in for at least
two months at a Wikimedia project (other than Wikisource) in
the language that they have requested and made at least 250
edits in that project.
3. If there are insufficient experienced contributors, then
a language request will be honored if it has at least three
votes from active contributors in that language. An active
contributor will be defined as someone who has been a
logged-in user for one month at a Wikimedia project in the
specified language, with at least 100 edits .
