Changed the Subject line.


Arjuna and I were discussing the below issue that Beria pointed out.

But as Arjuna said, some of the important features like searchability of archives, stats, and so on  are missing in the mail man. As per my understanding this is one of the reason given by Telugu and Marathi wiki communities for not moving to Wikimedia list. I am just wondering whether it is possible to include these features in mail man. At least the search option which is very vital for groups is a must for wikimedia lists.

Why isn't a "normal" mailing list? Create a bug for it (here are three examples: creation of Wikiconference-indiacreation of Wikimedia-blr and creation of wikiml-l)

Imagine um mundo onde é dada a qualquer pessoa a possibilidade de ter livre acesso ao somatório de todo o conhecimento humano. É isso o que estamos a fazer.

Arjuna, This is already done. The mail is sent to various Indic language lists also.

Sorry, I did not notice it. BTW, Telugu wikipedia  team  uses  teluguwiki@googlegroups.com.

Cheers

Dear Indic wikimedians,

Thank you very much for the welcome messages and for making me feel at home.

Over the past few years I have interacted with many of you for the various Indic Wiki related activities and we have done many successful projects. Thank you very much for all those wonderful projects. Now when we are moving to a different phase of growth of Wikimedia in India, I request  more support from your side.

To get started we shall together develop a plan for Indic language wikis and design few pilot projects to gain learnings to drive growth. I propose to develop this plan collaboratively and openly - in true wiki style.  This will include focused Indic language meetups, virtual meetings, desk research and constantly synthesizing the findings from all of these into learnings.  These learnings will then flow into pilots that we will implement and review and learn from.


For this purpose, I will be using the following page http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_-_India_Programs/Indic_Languages.  It is very preliminary right now - but will keep updating it.  The page will give you a flavor of the kind of process and methodology I plan to use - and also give you a hint of the end output.  However, I stress that is nothing more than a stub right now. So please provide your suggestions.

Nice to see the detailed approach.
I will suggest forwarding to respective language wiki mailing list, in addition to city mailing lists to reach the target audience.

Best wishes

Arjun
