  • @Mahir256, 我爱大日如来: As it might take months/years till this is create, shall we create this property as an intermediary solution and delete it once the language code is available? It should be fairly straightword to convert the text. BTW, if so datatype should probably be string, not "monolingual text". On a side note: @我爱大日如来 is your interested in both sa and pi or just sa? --- Jura 17:15, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
    • I interested in Sanskrit and Pali.--我爱大日如来 (talk) 09:32, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
    • I would not mind if the Siddham script names were added as aliases in Sanskrit or Pali in the interim, since both those languages have been written in various Indic scripts. I'm not a big fan of having this be a stopgap property unless there is precedent for having done this for other scripts (where the property doesn't otherwise serve as an aid like a romanization or other transcription).
