- The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
- The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
- The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:
|What||Value||Example / Explanation|
|Language code||pa (SIL, Ethnologue)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Eastern Punjabi||Language name in English|
|Language name||ਪੰਜਾਬੀ||Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...|
|Language Wikidata item||Q58635 - item has currently the following values:
||Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.|
|Project name||ਵਿਕੀਸਰੋਤ||"Wikisource" in your language|
|Project namespace||ਵਿਕੀਸਰੋਤ||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||ਵਿਕੀਸਰੋਤ ਗੱਲ-ਬਾਤ||"Wikisource talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)|
|Enable uploads||yes||Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.|
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin").
Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
|Project logo||File:Wikisource-logo-pa-v6.svg||135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)|
|Default project timezone||Asia/Kolkata||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)|
|Additional namespaces||For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"|
|Additional settings||Anything else that should be set|
|submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)|
We have been working for some time have and have uploaded many texts on the Multilingual Wikisource. I think its time that we have a separate domain for Punjabi Wikisource. Besides this, a few writers have started donating their books and more will follow.--Satdeep Gill (talk) 15:13, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
(see Phabricator task T149522) The main page on sourceswiki can be found here, in the Category:ਪੰਜਾਬੀ (Category Punjabi) there are some 434 pages today. Might be @Satdeep gill: could inform us how many (approx.) users are working there, I don't know the amount. But they seem to be OK in the last time.

@-jkb-: Many members of the Punjabi community have contributed to Wikisource in the past. Recently, we also organized a meetup focusing on Wikisource. Last month there were 9 active users. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 15:58, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Remark from sourceswiki / Oldwikisource: @Millosh:there is an activity with Punjabi texts since 2012 / 2013 (see e.g. here) with a huge amount of pages yet; might be the proposal to edit now on incubator ws/pa could be a bit iritating to the users - somebody would have to move all pages from sourceswiki to the incubator and then, when OK, to move it again to the new url address. -jkb- 23:29, 12 February 2017 (UTC) (bct over there)
- On Incubator it is actually not possible to edit Ws pages at all, that's why I commented on Millosh's comment. --MF-W 16:49, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
