Saraiki language ?


Today I noticed that in MantisBT we have an unhandled language file 'strings_skr-arab.txt'. According to ISO 639, this is Saraiki language.

Looking for it here, I found 2 entries for it

Following the 2nd link gives an error message: Sorry, the servers are overloaded at the moment. Too many users are trying to view this resource. Please wait a while before you try to access this resource again.

    Thanks for reporting this. This happens when statistics for a language are initially not available, but are being calculated in the background and then cached. If you try to access the link again after a few minutes you should see the statistics.

    I'll check with Niklas if we need to improve the reporting here

      Code map entry was added for skr-arab, so the request is fulfilled.

        I just got a mail notification about this page this morning, not sure what triggered it.

        Anyway I just wanted to let you know that, over a year later, there are still 2 entries showing up for Saraiki when picking the language (as shown on the original screenshot). Not sure if this is an actual problem or not.

          Saraiki has multiple scripts, but for now only the Arabic script is supported (and it may/should be the default if there's no script specified, unless another script is enabled like for Chinese or Serbian with their two script variants, causing the code without the script specifier to become deprecated/disused for translations, while still allowing a single portal to present these variants).

          User categories may or may not specify their script variant in their Babelbox, so there are different categories ("skr" containing "skr-arab" as a subcategory). We don't know if and when another script variant will be enabled for that language (this will depend on community demand and support).

          Note also that Saraiki is itself a member of another macro-language with its own code.
