This is a fantastic idea. Especially after Raphael and team's incredibly successful Kumusha Bus in Ghana this past weekend. I'm told there is a thriving open community in Ghana that's looking for more opportunities to connect and grow!

Hi Kasper

In June, Wikimedia ZA held Wiki Indaba. It was for wikipedians from Africa and wikipedians working on Africa from outside, as well as those from the aligned movement across Africa. We had delegates from all over Africa, including Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire and Tunisia, and France. Afripedia was invited, I know, because I made a special effort to make sure they knew about it. I believe Florence also mentioned it to them. But there was some change happening at Afripedia too.

I think another Wiki Indaba will definitely happen, but for when and where you will have to check with Douglas at Wikimedia ZA the original organizers (and aiming for Ghana for 2017 is a great idea, hopefully having had others in 2015-6).

I really don't see any point in spitting the conference and having a francophone one separate from the rest. It means we are going backwards, but with Afripedia on board, perhaps the weighting of the conference can become more balanced. You can find out more about the conference at ... And on meta:

Most of the people on this list were at the last one.


Isla on the move. Excuse the brevity.
