How much detail should be on a page for it not to be a stub? Is there a template of desired headings each language page should have?

I suppose a good rule of thumb would be "if it's big enough to fit the language spec, it's not a stub". As for the headings, looking at some of the bigger pages may help. --Ihope127 21:49, 14 Feb 2006 (GMT)
Good question. I have recently 'stubbed' a bunch of language articles, and my rule of thumb is: if you don't have to scroll the web page to see the entire article then it is a stub. This is of course not a very accurate rule, and there are lots of exceptions to it. For instance the Sceql is not a stub IMHO, but .Gertrude definately is. --Rune 03:07, 15 Feb 2006 (GMT)
Sceql is two screenfuls of content for me. You need to specify a screen size and font size. --Graue 15:37, 15 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Some of these languages really don't have a lot of information available, or it is not worth copying all the information from their definitive home pages onto the wiki. --unsigned by 206.169.234.162

Well, remember that it's usually copyright violation to copy something onto this Wiki. It's often better to rewrite, anyway. --Ihope127 21:49, 14 Feb 2006 (GMT)
