There are many projects in small languages. People want to develop
them, but are often not sure what should they do. Even something basic
like "improve existing pages and write new ones" may not be obvious.

Is there something like a "task list for new projects"? Something like:

* Write new articles about your own culture
* Translate articles about worldwide topics from big Wikipedias
* Create useful templates, like {{welcome}, {{citation needed}},
{{infobox}}, {{delete}} etc.
* Write content policies
* Write help pages about MediaWiki (that's a big topic for its own thread)
* Complete and maintain the translation of MediaWiki and extensions in
* Create pages for Village pump, Administrator notice board, Help desk etc.
* Watch Recent changes
* Periodically delete articles that were marked for speedy deletion

(Of course, for Wikisource, Wikibooks etc. the task list would
somewhat different.)

I was about to write such page for the Punjabi Wikipedia, which I
kinda adopted in the last few months, but then thought that something
like this may exist already. Is anybody familiar with anything?

Thank you.
