I see several possibilities: 1. Free hosting. I think that an educational instution (e.g. University) might accept hosting Wikilivres under some conditions (legal responsibility from a Wikimedia chapter?). 2. Financial support only. I could continue to have the legal responsibility of the project. I have a Paypal account to receive donations. 3. A chapter or another organisation takes over the legal and financial responsibility. My main criteria is the long term support for the project. >> A review of the content and a policy about inclusions seem to be >> sensible if the legal responsibility is moved on. > > Okay. > > Thank you. > > Best, > > Gautam Best regards, Yann _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiaemail@example.com https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
