During the weeks running up to Wikipedia 10 event, there was a talk on requesting a developers list for India specific discussions.
The need for an India specific developers list is quite obvious considering that we have several Indian language projects on Wikimedia, each needing specific attention in terms of technology to improve contributions and community.
Considering that there is growing interest in India about Wikimedia, about mediawiki - platform that runs Wikipedia and related projects; taking into account that there is a growing community of developers interested to contribute, develop on India specific projects, an India specific list of developers seems to be a necessity.
The initial request for a mailing list was made in December:
However, there hasn't been consensus yet. There was discussion on whether this would create unnecessary fragmentation.
Here's inviting thoughts, opinions. Or support, if we can gather some for creation of this mailing list.
