very soon. You know about Project Tiger first iteration where we saw
exciting and encouraging participation from different Indian Wikimedia
communities. To Know about Project Tiger 1.0 please see this page -
Like project Tiger 1.0, This iteration will have 2 components
1. Infrastructure support - Supporting Wikimedians from India with
internet support for 6 months and providing Chrome books.
2. Article writing contest - A 3-month article writing contest will be
conducted for Indian Wikimedians communities. Following community feedback,
we noted some community members wanted the process of article list
generation to be improved. In this iteration there will be at least two
lists of articles a) Google-generated list, b) community suggested a list.
Google generated list will be given to the community members before
finalising the final list. On the other hand, the community may create a
list by discussing among the community over Village pump, Mailing list and
similar discussion channels.
