Hi Mayur and others,

Sorry to be blunt – this reply is not specifically aimed at you, but at the group thinking that I see before me -, but there are a few things that will get your troubles out of the way as soon as possible. "Getting a room" and separating yourself from most of the MediaWiki and Wikimedia developers is not one of them – this is true for most open source development topics, not only for Indic language support in MediaWiki and within Wikimedia. Talking about issues without naming the players also does not resolve issues. Expecting the Wikimedia Foundation (or its developers) to be the answer to all your prayers does not resolve issues. You will be disappointed. Do take responsibility for what you need; act upon it!

So what does get issues resolved?
  1. Report issues in bugzilla. Please start now! Issues that have not been documented do not exist. Good bug reports consist of 4 parts. A description of the issue, steps to reproduce, description of observed behaviour and description of expected behaviour. If needed, add one or more screenshots and links: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org
  2. Fix the issues and submit the patches. As said, issues can be found in Bugzilla with the i18n tag: http://is.gd/p82m8V
  3. Get more i18n centric committers from India, or more i18n committers in general. To become a committer, do a lot of what is described in 2. Once you have done that, go to http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Commit_access and get even more work as a reward for a job well done. Really good at what you do for MediaWiki and Wikimedia? There may be a job for you at the Wikimedia Foundation. More than a handful of formerly volunteer developers have come before you.

      I am also agree with Mr. hari prasad point of view because a separate developer list for indic languages will help these languages project to resolve any technical issue easily because most of them are facing the same problems, In coming time Indian languages wii projects are aspected to grow fast that's what wiki media foundation want so a separate developer list will help these smaller project to get their bugs resolved easily.

Thank you and regards
