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
I tend to agree with Gerard's views & Siebrand's points. Since there
are many lists , Yet another list will be a waste . There are many
lists for Indic Specific issues such as Indlinux list, which can be
also used to connect with indic developers
