What #priority? Applying #standards

Bug 8217 is old. It is about applying standards to the naming of Wikimedia project. The bug was filed in 2006 and as time goes on, an increasing number of people are upset. Some have gone to the next stage and became bitter.

One upset Wikimedian changed the priority of the bug to "immediate" and, given the law of the land, it was changed back to "normal" by an administrator.

At this time, several Wikimedia languages are not properly identified. Applicable standards should be applied. A really long time ago the language committee was created to prevent future issues. We are still waiting for the old pain, the old wrongs to be righted.

Please Wikimedia powers that be, please intervene. Please make sure that these issues are resolved.
