Language added. Please add Norsk bokmål to the list of languages in your "Options" page so that I can assign the admin rights to you.

Thanks. I added both "Norsk bokmål" and "Norwegian" to my list of languages on Pootle.

On closer inspection, I see that a separate "Norwegian" language has been added for Scratch project using language code "no". Per comments from the i18n-no mailing list[1], this is a deprecated code. (The same goes for code "nb_NO".) The preferred codes are:

Code | English name      | Norwegian name
nb   | Norwegian Bokmål  | Norsk (bokmål)
nn   | Norwegian Nynorsk | Norsk (nynorsk)

So the "nb_NO" should be renamed to "nb" only, and language title should be "Norwegian Bokmål" to be consistent with all the other languages listed on Pootle server. Sorry about the confusion.

As for Scratch on "no", it should probably be moved into "nb" as well, but only after contacting the admin on the new "Norwegian" language entry. Since code "no" is deprecated and only an alias and it is usually refers to "nb", it should be avoided both for technical and standardization reasons.

Replying to sayamindu:

Can you also add Norwegian Nynorsk (nn) to the list of languages. My Pootle username is the same as here, "eirikub".

Changes made. I will be adding Norwegian Nynorsk (nn) asap, and will be trying to coordinate with the admin for Scratch for the change there.
