The problem with this sort of deletion is that it is not consistent across Language pages. I have no argument in principle, only that for the users' sake there should be a consistent guideline for contributors and sysops on this matter. --A12n 18:08, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

External links[edit]

I deleted the Acholiteck link since it is apparently dead. Also, added a link to the PanAfriL10n page on the language (cluster). The latter is relevant as localization of less widely spoken languages is an emerging topic. --A12n 18:10, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
