... Ethnologue is further contradicted by Scriptsource, to which it links, and by the article Three Munda Scripts by Norman Zide. All these sources say that the Warang Citi script is used for publication.

Will you take care of suggesting an update to Ethnologue?

I did it. Here is what I wrote:


Hello,

The page currently says "Warang Citi script [Wara], no longer in use."

"Wara" is a link to http://scriptsource.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=script_detail&key=Wara . That page lists several articles, which suggest that the script is in current use, and this contradicts what the Ethnologue page says.

For your convenience, here is a direct link to the Zide article (it's a bit hard to find on the Scriptsource page): http://sealang.net/sala/archives/pdf8/zide1999three.pdf

And here is another document that supports the fact that Warang Citi is in current use: https://www.swarthmore.edu/SocSci/langhotspots/Ho/alphabet/Ho_Unicode_review.pdf

Can you please update your page accordingly?

Thank you!


If there are no objections, I will add "hoc" to translatewiki.net.

And Ethnologue people replied and said they'll fix it!

I love it when Wikipedia changes sources :)
