[Foundation-l] A successful request not yet fulfilled (was Language Prevention Committee created)

The process on the multilingual Wikisource domain is not covered by
the language subcommittee yet; you'll notice that there is a redundant
process at <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/RFL#Wikisource>. The
secondary processes will eventually be merged into the Meta process
(probably a combination of both, not simply removing one), but we want
to make sure that the latter is working at a reasonable efficiency
first. As your sarcasm indicates you already know, we've had some
difficulty starting up.

I would suggest continuing to follow the Wikisource process, since the
request is there. This process is the same as it was on Meta until the
reform: file a bug request following community approval, and it might
be done eventually. I'm sorry that we can't do anything more at the
moment, but we're busy catching up on requests (for many projects,
*not* only Wikipedias) that were filed through the subcommittee
process in the transitional period.

Yours cordially,
Jesse Martin (Pathoschild)

> # This page have at least one successful request for a new Wikisource wiki:

> ## This have a bugzilla request:

> ## The MessagesTa.php is avaiable at MediaWiki SVN repository
