Many if not most of the issues that bedevil Indian languages are not specific to Indian languages. On my blog and on conferences I have been talking about these issues frequently. By discussing this on a India specific list, you remove everything that is relevant from the eyes of those people like me who do not only care about India but also care about similar problems elsewhere.
Did you know that languages from Africa who use the Latin script use characters that you do not find in Latin fonts ??
Did you know that while it is wonderful that there is now an extension that supports input methods for Indic languages, it would be preferable to have its functionality in the MediaWiki core ??
I do not want to lose track on these issues so I URGE you all not to separate yourself. It will make all of us less effective.
