Interesting! I can speak and write little French, but haven't contributed to any French language projects.

And then there is the question of African languages. Personally I think this is where Africa can gain most. How many of you have contributed in African languages? Which languages Any obstacles?
I've contributed to in Ewe and still do sometimes.

There is a mailinglist list about Wikipedia in African languages which
has been active since 2006:

I believe some Wikimedians in Cameroon also on this list have already
connedcted with you.
Yeah I have exchanged a few emails, it's a bit hard to keep up with
everyone and I also have to adapt to the heat :)

It would be great if we can have dinner together, we can try to gather
all the participants and other Wikimedians who are present in Douala
who are interested.  I can post here and on https://twitter.com/guaka
when I know more about a possible location for this.

a k'an be,
Kasper
