I believe I have already informed you last year that the mailing list gets
cleared at least once a week, and that has been largely happening since the
list was founded by hpnadig. If you personally wish to volunteer as a

to do. If I recall correctly, even last time you were suggesting that we

there has been no response.
I request other Wikimedians to comment on this, and I opine that active
 Wikimedia users should be the admins of the Indian community mailing
