Good to see the progress the Assamese Wiki Community building, and the FAQ set. Hoping to see the FAQ Booklet in PDF and more outreach activities, WCI would work like a catalyst to promote. In fact Assamese people are widespread all over India and quite conscious for language and literature. So, that is a great way to reach to more language enthusiasts.
