Purodha has been given temporary Bureaucrat status on ksh.wikipedia.org. However, import priviliges are disabled. How can these be activated? This Wikipedia has been for a month without articles, and we really want to hurry up to prevent a big mess, which would occur when new articles are created and then overwritten by the imported ones. Thank you for your help, Dominik
The one thing that astonishes me is that the Ripuarian name is used for 
the ksh acronym. Given that ksh is Kölsch as you can verify here: 
http://www.ethnologue.com/show_language.asp?code=ksh I wonder why you 
use the Ripuarian name. Ripuarian is considered to be a higher level 
linguistically then Kölsch, it means that there cannot be 
standardisation within Ripuarian. If in effect ksh is Kölsch, then I am 
fine with it but in that case please do not use the word Ripuarian.
