WMIN chapter president Rahul Deshmukh attended Wikimania 2018 in Cape Town
without being selected for any type of scholarship. My question is why was
he sent to the conference depriving other community members from India who
were in the waiting list.
He spoke in the informal chairpersons' meetup for few minutes. The meeting
doesn't require president of the organization's presence, and already there
were 2 EC member of WMIN present, who could have attended the meeting.
To me, this is utter misuse of power and abuse of donation money.
The Indian community mailing list is arguably the most used mailing list by
the Indian Wikimedia community. However, recently some users have reported
problems with subscription and sending messages as non-subscribers. All
these issues are need to be dealt by the list admins at the earliest
possible. However, the issues remain unsolved.
So I think more active community members must be added as mailing list
admins so that these issues can be addressed in a timely manner.

Looking forward for comments from other members.

Subject: [Wikidata] Treating 'transgender female' as 'female' in gendered
To: Discussion list for the Wikidata project. <
If your language has feminine and masculine forms for occupations, and your
Wikipedia embeds occupations from Wikidata and applies the female label in
case of P21 equalling 'female', please make sure your code also uses the
feminine form for P21 equalling 'transgender female'.
I just made this correction on the Hebrew Wikipedia, here:
