The following text should have appeared in the following mailing list Langcom. 2015-August:
Dear LangCom members, Thanks for your responses, they are encouraging. I honestly would give an opportunity to any community that shows positive trends, giving attention and fast feedback to minority languages. Check for example the statistics from 2008: https://web.archive.org/web/20080519192111/http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Localisation_statistics https://web.archive.org/web/20080201001848/http://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translating:Group_statistics Take a close look on the following statistics from 2008: Spanish: Wikisource already open with 24.42% of the extensions used by wm (Neapolitan has 30% today); Thai: Wikisource already open with 1.77% of the extensions and 92% of the mw messages (Neapolitan has 100% today); Latin: Wikisource already open with 23% of the extensions used by wm and 58% of the mw messages; Romanian: Wikisource already open with 15% of the extensions used by wm and 89% of the mw messages; Turk: Wikisource already open with 24% of the extensions used by wm and 73% of the mw messages; Ukrainian: Wikisource already open with 1.4% of the extensions used by wm and the 78% of the mw messages; Azərbaycan: Ext-mw: 0.18% / mw-mess: 25%; Cymraeg: Ext-mw: 1.42% / mw-mess: 65%; Danish: Ext-mw: 17%; Estonian: Ext-mw: 7% / mw-mess: 58%; Armenian: Ext-mw: 8% / mw-mess: 83%; Kannada: Ext-mw: 1% / mw-mess: 35%; Korean: Ext-mw: 8% / mw-mess: 36%; Malayalam: Ext-mw: 0.18% / mw-mess: 47% / core-most: 78%; Macedonian: Ext-mw: 4% / mw-mess: 76%; Slovenščina: Ext-mw: 5% / mw-mess: 72%; Tamil: Ext-mw: 0% / mw-mess: 31% / 47 %; Faroese: Ext-mw: 7% / mw-mess 43%; Bân-lâm-gú : Ext-mw: 6% / mw-mess 40% / core-most 70%; Yiddish: Ext-mw: 0% / mw-mess: 53% / core-most 71%. In 2015 we have almost twice the messages than in 2008, However: *Neapolitan (2015): Ext-mw: 30% / mw - mess: 100% / core-most: 100%; From the 21 wikisources with less % of localisation than neapolitan, still in 2015 I can count 4, that are below the % of localisation of neapolitan, still they managed to have a wikisource permanently approved. The good news is that 17 language communities managed to improve the localisation further than we are, and we will follow that good example. But for sure, in order this activity alive... the small/minority languages, need to be given the same opportunity you were giving in 2008, when the wiki world was still flourishing. Regards, C.R.
