Congratulations to the Gujarati Wikisource contributors on this important
milestone. Based on a brief visit to the site and also from Proofread
page stats <http://toolserver.org/~phe/statistics.php>, I found that Proofread
extension <https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Help:ProofreadPage_extension> has
not been used for this. I had the experience of setting up and using the
same on Telugu Wikisource. I think it will be useful and improve the
productivity of the team and would like to suggest the team to try it.

Gujarati Wikisource has achieved yet another milestone on its second
birthday (29.03.2014) completed uploading full 50 books which has come in
The collection of these 50 books includes well known Gujarati literary
creations in the form of Autobiography, Novels, Plays, Collection of Poems,
Essays, Moral Stories etc. This includes works of prominent writers such as
Mahatma Gandhi, Zaverchand Meghani, Kavi Nhanalal, Surasinhji Gohil,
Educationist Gijubhai Badheka, Kavi Dalapatram, Ramanlal Nilkanth etc.

and its announcement is made at common platform on source. Volunteer

and proof reading is done. Once completed, another book is undertaken.
