The language committee would like to approve this request. Sign languages
are recognised as languages by the ISO. There are only technical obstacles
that prevent the creation of an ase.wikipedia.org These are things that can
be solved one way or another.

NB When this is the time that we define what is on the back of the Wikipedia
globe, excluding SingWriting now means that it is excluded for ever.
