  This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 02:48, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

  1. Oppose until people willing to work on it are found because the proposer, who doesn't have an account on Meta like they should, seems to be proposing languages for the sake of it. Nikki 19:45, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
