[Apologies for crosspostings]

One outcome of the just concluded "Wikimania" conference in Cambridge, Mass. 
(US) http://wikimania2006.wikimedia.org/ was discussion among several people 
(there and online) about how to facilitate development of Wikipedias in African 
languages. 

This discussion resulted in the creation of a new list for discussion and 
coordination among all interested in whatever indigenous language(s) of the 
continent, and in making Wikipedia (and educational applications of ICT 
generally) more relevant and useful to Africa and all Africans. Dubbed 
"AfrophoneWikis" the list has its homepage at 
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/afrophonewikis/ . There are several links to 
relevant Wikimania and Wikipedia pages on the site.
