Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Support to Community participation - Wikipedia
at Swatantra 2014
This e-mail is to take your suggestions about the below proposal.
As some of you may know that Swatantra 2014 (5th International Free
Software Conference, Kerala) is being held in Trivandrum during December
18-20, 2014. More details can be found at this link
. Organized by ICFOSS (GoK) this event is set
to attract hundreds of Free Software enthusiasts. CIS is one of the
supporters of this conference.
There is a dedicated track for Wikipedia/Wikimedia during the conference.
We are also planning to set up a Wikimedia stall at the event. We are
hoping to have ML Wikimedians take lead on this.
We are considering to give travel and stay scholarships for select
Wikimedians from across India, who are interested to participate in this
event and benefit from it. This will also be a great opportunity to meet
and interact with Malayalam Wikimedia community.
CIS-A2K is considering to support upto 2 Wikimedians from each language
community. Interested Wikimedians will be asked to put up a request, along
with a statement of purpose, in their respective Wikimedia Village pumps
and will request the community members to second them. Based on the
community response CIS-A2K will decide on providing travel and stay
scholarships. CIS-A2K will support this as part of its Community
Strengthening Initiatives 
Please let us know your suggestions on the above process and share your
inputs on how we could do this in a better manner. We would like to put out
a call by November 10. We will be open to receiving your feedback until
November 7, 2014.
