Forwarding the update to foundation-l.
Amazing news -- congratulations to the Malayalam Wikisourcerors for
this work and its success.
As far as I know, this is the first offline Wikisource compilation to
be released as a CD.
It would be interesting to see something similar with translations of
essential classics into many languages.

We completed one week of Malayalam Wikisource offline release. Here is
some statistics that we have: (Thanks to Jyothis for compiling this)
Hits to the ISO image : 46,922 (this is just number of hits. This does
not mean that all 46,922 hits lead to complete/successful downloads.
We assume at least 70-80% of those hits would be complete downloads.
3,15,274 hits for mlwiki.in- the site hosting iso image and online
version of Offline(Yes! :) ) on June 12.
4,30,959 on June 13th
2,30,985 on June 14th
1,04,280 on June 15th
Yesterday we have started a torrent link also for the ISO image
(http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6477957). So downloads are happening
in that way also now.
Here are the links by which you can access Malayalam wikisource offline release.
Remember, last year the download count of Malayalam wikipedia offline
version 1.0 one week after the release was around 5000.
We found that the interest in Malayalam Wikisource offline is more
than that of Malayalam Wikipedia offline.
