Dear fellow Wikimedians,
(this is important and a rare opportunity -- please do take a few
moments to read.)
I would like to draw your attention to a major piece of news:
The Wikimedia Foundation is convening a community consultation on the
future of Wikimedia work in India, to be held in October in Bangalore,
with significant representation from across India, the different
projects, and the different language communities.
Please see the following page on Meta for details, context, and to begin
discussion the delegates you would like to see participating. All costs
will be borne by the Foundation.
Let's try and keep discussion on the talk page of that page on Meta, so
everyone can follow, even people not on this list.
Also, your help in forward this widely, translating as necessary, etc.,
would be MUCH appreciated. Again, this is an important opportunity, and
we need to ensure we get every community's attention.
I look forward to this conversation very much!

Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share
in the sum of all knowledge. Help us make it a reality!
