[Foundation-l] Following the conventions: seperating Wikisource

If Wikisource's community discussed that issue thoroughly and agreed on 
the current way, then I guess its okay.

When you visit wikisource.org , you don't know that you can add content 
there. perhaps a little highlighting of what is going on the wiki is 
appropriate? also having a multi-lingual main page would be great too 
(introducing Wikisource with many languages)...

Dovi said that when the portal is on a wiki, it is much faster and 
easier to update..I agree with that..may be all of the other portals 
gets converted to mw installations? but comes the question..'the other 
installations wouldn't have sysops as there are nothing there except the 
main page, how it would be maintained?' a solution may say, make a sysop 
there from each language..

I am with incubating other languages on wikisource.org (sub-domain or as 
it is now) because as said, some languages will keep incubating till the 
end of time.

About the language approval and that any new sub-domain created should 
have mw completely localized, may be these unique languages don't have 
enough vocabulary  to translate it? or  don't have that contributors 
willing to create that vocabulary in the said language (yep, original 
research :P)..
btw I have sent this thread to fndn-l and ws-l but then I noticed that I 
haven't subscribed there ;)
