Hi, Thanks Sudhanwa jee for asking me to comment here.
I know Maithili and worked for Maithili Desktop with project like Fedora, Firefox, Libreoffice, Gnome, KDE. I am also associate with Maithili wikipedia process. Amir also asked me for the feedback weeks before. This language is Maithili and I know the community working in Maithili Wikipedia. I think, Maithili Wikipedia creation should be approved.
