Hello friends, On Saturday representatives of Mumbai Wikipedia Community, Amitabh Kundan and Pranav (User:Wheredevelsdare), came over to Pune on 14 My 2011 for discussing the forthcoming Wikiconference India 2011 and met up with representatives of Pune community, Sudhanwa Jogalekar, Radha Mishra, Suhel Bohra, Srikeit, Harshad Gune and Ashwin Baindur. The Wikimedia India chapter was represented by Arjuna Rao Chawala (chapter President), the Wikimedia India National Office by Hisham Mundol. Bishakha Datta, Trustee, Wikimedia Foundation graced the meeting with her presence.
The Pune Wikipedia Community acknowledged the great honour done by Mumbai community in asking the Pune community to co-host the event and promised all cooperation. Subsequently in the evening meetup the members of the Pune Wikipedia Community were informed about this prosal and the Pune community unanimously agreed to particpate and support the venture. Pranav gave a presentation on the progress so far - the suggested dates for finalisation i.e. 4 to 6 Nov 2011, the proposed venues for the meetup, the accomodation, a marquee event featuring Jimbo Wales and a social get-together. Also discussed at the meeting were the proposed makeup of organising committee, the modalities, likely budget, and other issues. The Mumbai meetup where they will discuss these issues is being held next weekend. After that we assume the planning will begin in right earnest. Kudos to Mumbai community for all the footwork and hard work put in to date. Warm regards, Ashwin Baindur ------------------------------------------------------
