Firstly, I'm disappointed Erik chose to characterise my stated
motivation as "false pretenses", as if I had some kind of bias towards
Klingon and I deliberately tried to mislead the list. I mistakenly
created Klingon, I did not try to pull a swiftie on the Wikimedia
community. I hope that Erik's choice of words was in error.
Jimbo issued one statement against Klingon and one statement in favour
of Klingon. His opinion was thus sufficiently ambiguous that my pretext
was removed. However he later clarified his position by withdrawing his
initial statement -- both on wikitech-l and on #wikipedia. I would have
been happy to re-enable the wiki as soon as he did this, however he
asked me to wait for the discussion to pan out.
The compromise agreed to by Erik and Timwi is to allow the Klingon
Wikipedia, but to avoid interlanguage links. Accordingly, I have
commented out the Klingon entry in $wgLanguageNames. This means that
markup of the form [[tlh:wIqIpe'DIya]] will create an external link
rather than an interlanguage link, just like links to meta or sep11.
Otherwise the wiki is fully functional.
