Yea. I remember that announcement 2 years back and then it got
converted into an internal project.
But, a good opportunity for advocacy here. Perhaps some chapter
members should meet the department officials and try and get co-
opted into the decision-making process. Often, it is lack of
information and trust that scares them. Unlike 2 years, back with
the chapter in place and most of us quite well networked, we should
get involved closely and see if we can get them to invest in
improving the sanskrit and kananda wikis.
The government usually prefers a project with editing control rather
than one without any direct control over content decisions made.
