Too small?

Meta articles? If it's what I think you mean, incubator is absolutely 
not the place.

As I already wrote to Wikivoyage-l, I've already imported all the 
relevant pages from general to meta-wiki: general was an extremely small 
wiki, so it fits perfectly well in our usual standard of a few subpages 
with their talk pages, a namespace doesn't seem needed.

Oggetto: Wikivoyage pages on Meta-Wiki

I've moved [[Travel Guide]] to
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikivoyage per talk request.
Now https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikivoyage should be the main
discussion venue for meta-(cross-language-)issues in Wikivoyage.
	As Meta-Wiki replaces Wikivoyage general in this role, I've also
imported a few dozens pages which seemed still relevant to the new
context or still active, see
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:PrefixIndex/Wikivoyage/ and
The most important pages in this moment would seem to be
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikivoyage/New_language_versions and all
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikivoyage/Migration/New_policies subpages.
	I hope this will help speed up the process. Please help cleaning up and
updating the imported pages and let me know if you need more of them; I
didn't find anything of persistent interest on wikivoyage tech, except
the documentation for extensions which seems already superseded by new
pages on mediawiki.org.
