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.
That's participants from 3 Francophone countries in Africa, the
relevant Wikipedia mentions 24 and 31 countries. Last week I asked and
none of the 14 Africans who attended the Douala session knew about
WikiIndaba. Same for the participants in Madagascar if I remember
Also on wikiindaba.net
I don't see *any* French language content (I
googled "français site:wikiindaba.net" ). That makes it pretty hard
for people who don't speak English to attend.
integrates the MLEB package (for French), do we have
French speaking volunteers to translate the most important pages?
