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

The developers usually want approval by the subcommittee or the board
before creating a new language subdomain. The language subcommittee
has developed the language proposal policy
<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WM:LPP> to provide a clear
step-by-step policy on getting approval, but the Wikisource creation
policy is not equivalent.

Unfortunately, this means that most or all requests on the
multilingual Wikisource do not fit the requirements and will need to
be re-opened under the language proposal policy, in particular
regarding the use of arguments rather than simple votes.

Fortunately, the existence of an active test project (whether on the
incubator or the multilingual Wikisource) will mean that the request
can be fast-tracked if there are insufficient arguments against in the
new request. Requests for more projects in a language already
established in another project can be fast-tracked even further.

I apologize for the delay and inconvenience; once the new process is
fully settled in there should be much less hassle.

Yours cordially,
Jesse Martin (Pathoschild)
