[Wikimediaindia-l] WikimediaIndia-l list description

There are several mailing lists that are about the English Wikipedia. The
problem with including discussing particular English subjects on the Indian
mailing list will not help in coming to a consensus in the English language
community. My expectation is that when English becomes a major topic, it
will drown out much of the language issues that are specific to India and
the organisational issues that are specific to India.

It is the same as with a developers list for India. It is the perfect way of
ghettoising  yourself and effectively become more frustrated and helpless.
