One does not even know how to begin helping out. For one, there are so many
dialects, hardly any Konkani speaks the same dialect as the next Konkani
guy he meets. The Gomantak variety is sufficiently different from the other
versions to justify forks. And we have only just begun!

Probable offtopic: i read once that konkani use
atleast 3 scripts
(devanagiri, kannada, malayalam). If webfonts can switch appropriate
font according to a user, while keeping one encoding as base
(devanagiri?) , may help new generation people, who are now part of
other states, and living under dominance of other languages can
approach the wiki more confidently.

Like Shiju has earlier replied to you ,
There is already a Wikipedia project (in the incubator stage ) for
It is available here http://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/gom
You can start contributing to it, Inspire others too and gradually make
a standalone language Wikipedia.
If you are interested, I can probably connect you to Gurudath Baliga,
Director of Konkani Vishwa Kendra, who is
passionate about the same.
P.S. For other Wikipedia Projects in Incubation, You can find them here

Thanks for this informative Mail.
"INDIA i.e. BHARAT" has more than
1600 local languages.
GOA is a State with all its communities speaking in one language
"KONKANI" without even
having a Primary School in its own Mother-tongue,as it was ruled by
foreign rulers for
more than four centuries.
Can 'WIKIMEDIA' organization be of any help?
With best regards,
Damodar V. Bale,
