The record for Wolof as a suppress-script field:

Type: language
Subtag: wo
Description: Wolof
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Latn

But Wolof is written in both Latin and Arabic, and in fact a department under the Senegal Ministry of Education<http://www.education.gouv.sn/administration/directions.html>, Direction d'alphabetisation et les langues nationales, has published a teaching manual for Wolof in Arabic script and has standardized the Arabic-script orthography for Wolof. (This is not exclusive of standardized Latin orthography for Wolof.) Are we sure the suppress-script field is appropriate in this case?
