One of the key points that kept being reiterated in the Strategic
Planning process was that we have no method for "failing well". For
saying - we tried this, and it didn't work (I'm not saying that's the
case here, but I'm just using this as an example). The community
makes the determination to close a language version, putatively, but
in practical terms it's proven difficult to do. Generally it's an RfC
on Meta. I think the last major contentious one was the Simple
English Wikiquote? Once the decision is made, then it falls to the
developers to actually flip the switch or say the magic words, or do
whatever it is they do to close the project.
