you should call it a program instead of a pilot.

An example of Indic pilot which I can give is conflict resolution /
increasing awareness of Wiki policies / culture to newer/older community
members alike through policy pages and sorting uneasiness between new and
old editors which exist in few Indic wikis. This will lead to fewer cases
of misuse / abuse of wiki-resources against good interest of community /
wikimedia at large.(in effect prevent more cases like the recent RfC on a
Hindi Wikipedian)

Yes, this is a tough task, there are issues in it, but taking up something
like this at least at a smaller level, can be called a pilot, not something
that's been proven successful for years now.
