Looking at this article’s history [1] and the l10n dashboard for the si locale [2], there has been very little activity recently and this page is one of the few pages that have a translation or one that is not up-to-date. If you like to be involved in localization, you are welcome to contribute.

CC-ing Danishka, since he appears to be both the Team lead for si and the last editor of this page. He may be able to give the best advise here.

Sorry, only just noticed the reporter expects this page to be in English.

I’m not sure why the si page ranks so high in search results (it’s also number 4 when searching "mozilla linux" for my locale), but the link itself (containing /si/) is the proper link for the Sinhalese version so this bug would be invalid. There should be a search result for the en-US version above it pointing to though so basically nothing is wrong, albeit strange to see a high ranking for a non-properly localized article.

Depending on what the Sinhalese community wants, I think the page(s) could either be updated or removed, or Sinhalese could be disbled for Sumo, which would likely remove the search result.
The localized article does not exists anymore and at this moment, "si" has only 51 translated UI strings and 0 of 719 articles (2 update needed and 15 unreviewed changes). I would say the current effect is same as disabled.

Can we mark this as INVALID?
