This is a soft pre-announcement for the release of WikiFundi V2. And a
request at the same time...
WikiFundi is a software that provides off-line editing environment that
mimics the Wikipedia environment. WikiFundi allows for training and
contribution when technology, access and electricity outages fail or are
not available at all. It enables individuals, groups and communities to
learn how to edit Wikipedia, and to work on articles collaboratively.
Once completed and connected to the internet, these articles can be
uploaded to Wikipedia.
The WikiFundi software is intended to support theWikiAfrica
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiAfrica>movement and Wikimedia
volunteers across Africa thanks toFlorence Devouard
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Anthere>(Anthere) and Isla
Haddow-Flood, fromWiki in Africa
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_in_Africa>association. It has been
realized in collaboration with Wikimedia CH and Kiwix. It is set up by
Anthere, Emmanuel Engelhard (Kelson), Florent Kaisser, Renaud Gaudin and
other members of the community. The development of this software is made
possible thanks to the Wikimedia Foundation and the Orange Foundation.

The first version was launched in January 2017 during WikiIndaba. The V2
version is now released.

Now, the request... James downloaded the two English based versions :
WikiFundi Min En and WikiFundi Max En. Whilst he was able to boot the
Min version, he did not succeed to boot the Max version.
Would any of you with a raspberry PI 3 available willing to download the
Max version and double check if it boots for you ?
It requires one of those amazingly cheap (ok, much cheaper at least)
128GB SD card.
