All, As we all know, many of our Indic wikimedia projects have a very small community and some of them does not even have an administrator around when in need. I would like to draw your attention to the RfC for Indic Sysops<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Indic_Sysop>, a sysop group who could shoulder the additional responsibility of looking after other Indic language wikis along with their current responsibilities. I believe that it is a feasible idea, similar to that of a global sysop, as many of us are multi-lingual within the Indic language group. We do not see many Global sysops acting on Indic wikis, probably due to the non-latin nature of the scripts. Perhaps, Indic languages could be the largest group of languages in the spectrum to coordinate such a pool of hands due to the above fact. This group's administrative scope is envisioned to include all Indic wikimedia projects and it can exclude a project if they feel that they are large enough to handle themselves.
We would like to see a constructive discussion on the pros and cons of this and explore the possibility of implementing such a group. I wish to see the day where our small, sleeping wikimedia projects, who does not have anyone to care for being cared for, and nurtured to bring more hands on to help it grow. Thank you all for your time and please take a moment and provide your thoughts on the RfC Talk page. Thanks in advance.
