Hi, Nemo.

Certainly, this was an ENWP experiment, and it's not unreasonable that
there would be "no learnings for other projects".  The post's audience was
absolutely anyone in the movement who may care; after all, anyone can
replicate this experiment or something like it, in other countries, other
languages, etc.  We used community tools and no magic.  I'm not sure what
question you consider unanswered on that link.
