Sure. The aim is to share the community news of the various Indian Language
Wiki communities. As you can see from the PDF that I shared with you,
several languages already provided the community News. So requesting Kannada
wiki community also to be part of this.

It is the community newsletter. So I think it is better to name it as
*WikiMedia
India Community* News Letter. I will change like that.

Once the chapter is formed, chapter can think about taking this forward from
the next version of the News letter.

Typesetting is done using Open Office writer. It is still going on. I have
enabled *Commenting using Adobe Reader *feature in the PDF that I sent to
you. That might be the reason why it is crashed. I will send you a normal
PDF soon.
