The closure was done without the consent of the board. The language 
committee was asked to formulate an opinion, it is not of the opinion 
that the current situation is good. We proposed that this wiki would be 
reopened and that discussions would start on how the Moldovan and the 
Romanian Wikipedia can work together. An essential part of the time 
frame that will exist before this merger is that any vandalism will 
result in a ban for all the projects that such a person is involved in.

It is particularly the vandalism that made the huha around the Moldovan 
Wikipedia so unpalatable.
