Thanks for all the messages offering to help. I'm handing the role
over to Craig Spurrier, who is responsible for the print edition of
the English Wikinews and has been putting it out like clockwork. This
will, I hope, ensure that new language edition requests for Wikinews
will also be handled reliably. Thanks, Craig, for your help in this.

Craig, one amendment to my original request: Instead of filing the
site requests in BugZilla, could you use
once a language has met the necessary approval? This will allow
developers to set up new languages as a batch.

I've been discussing with members of the language subcommittee how we
can improve the process in general and will hopefully find time to
write some thoughts on the issue soon. Ideally at some point we will
have a Grand Unified Language Policy (GULP) but we're still quite a
bit away from that. ;-)
Peace & Love,
