something even if just coordinate and facilitate.

You could really do a great service by getting the interest and funds
together to get a nice font made from scratch for example. Like Tahoma but
more "Persian" looking. Open Type and with all the Persian/Tajik
characters and the extended Latin subset needed to transliterate them.
I've been shouting this need from the rooftops over here but they don't
take me seriously.  You might have better luck.

There are many other projects, in fact.

That is to be expected that they aren't jumping up and down for joy about

If you ask Microsoft to help you with your Linux project, you might also
get the same warm reception, right? However, from what I've observed, the
Farsiweb-Microsoft relationship has been mutally beneficial even when
there is no obvious profit to either side.

I'm not exactly sure what you want FarsiWeb to do beyond what they're
