hi Ashwin,

We've not finalized a meetup time yet. We've also not frozen a location for
the venue.

Arun Ram created this page:
http://wikimedia.in/wiki/Projects:GLAM_2011/Mumbai_Feb2011. There are
similar pages created for Delhi and Bangalore as well.

We've started listing the institutions in Mumbai here:
http://wikimedia.in/wiki/Projects:GLAM_2011/Mumbai_Feb2011/Planning. I know
the title says Maharashtra - but it would be great to keep it for
institutions in Mumbai till Liam's visit to Mumbai as it would help in

In addition to the several points you passed on from the Pune list, there is
also another issue. Indian GLAM institutions have content in various
languages. So, even Marathi and English Wikipedians would not cut it.
Library in Mumbai has Urdu, Parsi, Kannada, etc. This is not an immediate
issue but we might have to involve Wikipedians from other languages soon.

A question which Liam raised on the Mumbai list and which remains unanswered
is - if he's asked for a volunteer from the Wikipedia community while
talking to folks from the GLAM institution can he point the finger at
someone and say that a person would be ready to help. My take on this has
been that active Wikipedia editors need to know what this is about first.
I've read the documents that Liam has linked to (through WP:GLAM shortlink)
and it has left me confused :). So, first, we need to learn about GLAM as
Wikipedians first.

It would be great to hear from the planners from Bangalore and Delhi about
questions and issues they're facing with this as well.

warm regards,
