Ravi, this is exactly what I was talking about. I try to translate an
article from English and I'm told that the community can do it
themselves and don't need our help. The same editors refuse to help us
when we need content from Indic projects on English. If need be, we
could have an offlist discussion about this. I don't want to make too
much noise on the list.
