Ordering of languages?[edit]

Currently the languages seem to be grouped by script, with scripts ordered by the first-in-alphabetical-order language code that maps to them? I think this is a rather confusing way to do it, and likely to get a bit messy. If we want to group by script (which does make sense), I think we should go in alphabetical order by script. That approach also lets us leave comment-y gaps for scripts that we're consciously excluding, like {{Hans}} and {{Hant}} and {{Hang}} and {{Hrkt}} and the like. The only complication would then be for scripts like KUchar — do we use the template name, or the corresponding ISO name (in this case Arab)? —RuakhTALK 03:23, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Is this ready?[edit]

Is this template ready for use yet? If not, what do we need to do to make it ready?

I think the template's ready technically, but we should post something at WT:BP before moving into use. It would be best to double-check that we've covered as many lang/sc correlations as possible to avoid having to edit the template too much once it goes into broad distribution.

It would be wise to wait until March when Unicode 5.1 becomes official, and then a handful of other scripts could be added too (and possibly some already present specialized to subvariants). Also, before merging this to heavily-used templates such as {{term}}/{{t}}, it might be good to test it inside much less used {{l}}. --Ivan Štambuk 20:20, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Old East Slavic (orv) could be added for the old Cyrillic alphabet (Cyrs). Michael Z. 2008-11-21 01:51 z

This doesn't seem to be used anywhere and it has been superseded by the /script subtemplate of each language code. —CodeCat 20:31, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Delete. I've modified User:Conrad.Irwin/creation.js/inflNoun not to use it when people auto-create noun forms. —RuakhTALK 02:55, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Not quite completely, it's still called by the line:
# {{{{{form-template}}}|[[{{{origin}}}]]{{{template-lang}}}{{<includeonly>subst:</includeonly>User:Conrad.Irwin/creation.js/!sc|{{{lang}}}}}}}
