 That looks like a prudent solution. In combination with providing clear-cut
directions (which you kindly did on Meta) and support if necessary it will
in all likelihood turn the "barrier" of localization into a surmountable
one. Considering Kabyle as a model case for the viability of the procedure
makes a lot of sense. A big "thank you" to the langcom for this constructive
step forward.

Don't worry about it. The subcommittee has sufficiently proved that it is
capable of preventing Wikipedias over longer periods of time. Let's just
leave it at that ;-)
