I'll be around for the September 12th event at the Dept. of Public
How about a meet-up right after the program to take this further?

Send me the access. I'll see what I can help with. You should try Drupal
with CiviCRM for the website (or mediawiki itself).

Shall look forward to response from Hisham. I hope he's spotted this thread!

Heartening to hear this. There are a number of Wikipedians from India who've
been working on the projects for years now without aspiring for much other
than seeing their favorite projects grow, and at times putting in more than
just their time for the projects. It would be amazing if some of these long
time Wikipedians would come forward and take part in the establishments that
are building up and engage themselves in conversations with the decision
makers here to get that opportunity.
