That's quite a good number. The arrangements for the meetup were also quite elaborate. well done.
I am also curious about the depth of Malayalam Wiki. Could the count be explained? May be because of good participation in talk pages, collaborative articles, regular copy edits??
An apprx figures
# The total attendance was nearly 80 in the ml wiki meetup which
includes newcomers around 60%
# Morning Session was scheduled for regular wikipedians, where the
attendance was around 20 to 30 regular ml wikians
