Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Bengali wiki in Dec 2010

I was going through the monthly statistics and found Bengali wiki has had 114k edits in December!. New articles number has remained steady but the edits have spiked 7 times in that month.

I am curious. Was there some sort of automated cleanup going on? Can Bengali wiki editors enlighten me.
