Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Wikimedia India Community Newsletter
As all of you know, the first edition of the *Wikimedia India Community
released by Barry Newstead on 2010
The wikimedians associated with the Newsletter know that much effort had
put behind to bring out the first edition. We all are happy to see that the
newsletter is well received by Wikimedians across the world. There were
obstacles faced while we were working on the first edition. But the

coordinate the various activities of the Wikimedia India Newsletter.
I request the help and support from different Indian language wiki

community and should be able to coordinate with the respective language
community to prepare content for the Newsletter. The respective language
community can decide which active users can be part of the Newsletter team.
Please send a mail to me (shijualexonline(a)gmail.com) and Srikanth (
srik.lak(a)gmail.com) so that we can take this forward.
