Hi,

A bunch of observations:
1. I've never seen such scrutiny of any Wikipedian's contributions. I'm
disappointed also to see this scrutiny being done by only a section of the
community. I think the Indian community needs to speak up on this - whether
for or against such scrutiny even if being done under particular
circumstances. This must be done, in my opinion, in a way that shows the
scrutiny is only wrt the particular condition while still respecting the
editor for tAking the time and editing Wikipedia.
2. The community must also take a call on the voluntary contribution of a
Wikipedian when he/she is an employee either of WMF or when working with
another institutions (eg, in case of GLAM).
3. Can there be a community audit of projects with proactive contributions
from the community? Can this audit be done on Wikipedia's talk pages?
