Hey Ashwin!
I don't think anyone who is active on this list will misunderstand your
mail. :) We've had discussions before on how a lot of positions cause
confusion and I also want someone who can dedicate enough time and
attention to work on this project. So, no hard feelings on my part. I also
saw your Wikipatrika Meta suggestion (going OT here). Since I will be
taking that up, my hands are really full anyway.
Anyway, I'd want to be the backup in case you need any short term help. I
am grateful for your considerate explanation though :) In the meanwhile, we
have a list of women Wikipedians. Naveen can suggest a name or two that can
be approached?
Regards
Noopur
