To do list[edit]

Check in with User:AlbertHerring/WikiProject African art - some useful links there, too.

African language names[edit]


  • to organise articles for very closely related languages (eg Zulu/Tswana) in southern Africa
  • to seek consensus plus organise redirects so that variant language names find each other (eg Setswana/Tswana)
