My main point is that creating such project is not creating "just
another Wikimedia project", as it needs much more efforts than just
opening a project.

I am not happy to approve new Wikinews project at LangCom because I
know how hard is to keep it alive. I would really like to include
recommendations from Wikinews community as mandatory for creating a
new project. But, at last, I can say that I don't care. If someone
wants Wikinews, it is about her or him.

But, there is no chance that I would be willing to approve any
Wikijunior project without relevant experts who would lead such
project. My personal responsibility for creating a Wikijunior project
would be much higher than for creating a Wikinews project.
