We're basing the initial set on the languages which are ready for
import from Wikivoyage. At this point, it looks like that would be
German, Italian, English, French, Dutch and Swedish.

I think it's up to the language committee and the larger Wikimedia
community to determine the process for new languages. My understanding
is that per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language_proposal_policy
new languages would need to use the incubator at first to demonstrate
