Hi

Just to update this list, simple wiki community has opposed this. The
current votes stand at 6 opposes and 3 support with 1 editor waiting to
confirm his vote.
http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Simple_talk#Agreement

I had a good conversation about this yesterday with Frank on wiki and Rob
on IRC. I trust and respect Frank - he knows the education program and the
community better than anyone. I got a different impression from them, they
seemed open to working on this and coming up with a good solution agreeable
to all parties- like this wasn't a done deal. I trust both of them will do
the right thing in the interest of the community.

I did however get a different impression from reading the most recent
comments in Nitika's table on Wiki. So, I would like to state this - I
consider myself part of simple wiki community, I have edited there for a
while last year and know a few of the editors. I will not let this be
pushed without their support and approval. There has been a few ideas
kicking around Meta, a cross-wiki arbcom has been discussed for a while. If
need be I will create it on Meta or locally, or find another way, just to
deny this being pushed and not let the community be undermined.

I greatly respect Frank and know he will not let it come down to that, but
just in case anyone on the india side thinks, this will happen without the
community on simple wiki - they would be wrong. They have to convince the
simple wiki community first, they will not be circumvented.

Regards
Theo
