Subject: [Wikimedia-in-chn] India Programs: Reaching Out
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I am writing to all of you to correct a potential error. As you might be
aware, the Wikimedia Foundation has set itself an important objective of
supporting the community in India to expand participation. As part of this,
India Programs has been set up - and I work for it.
I have put together a plan for India (please see
and I had communicated this on the India mailing list. This has generated
interest as well as debate and discussion. However, I understand that some
of you might not be on that mailing list. I therefore thought I'd correct
this by reaching out directly to you and requesting you to have a look at
the page and share your comments (on the Talk Page or on this mailing list
or directly to me; my contact details are in my signature.) It outines the
thinking behind India Programs, key initiatives, milestones, team structure,
visit reports, IRC logs, recommendations on office location and some other
details. I hope you find it interesting, and I'd love to hear your views /
comments / suggestions.
Also, we I have a monthly IRC on India Programs with whoever is interested
- on the first Thursday of every month. I'll send out an invite to your
mailing list from now on. Do see if you can join in.
I am also going to try and attend as many community meet-ups in as many
locations as possible - so I look forward to meeting as many of you as
possible, as soon as possible. If you would be kind enough to let me know
when the next meeting is planned for and on what schedule (e.g. 2nd
Saturday, etc.) then I'll work out how to attend asap.
(Do excuse me if you have received this message through other mailing
lists, or it's a bit of a duplication if you are already on the India
