Again, this is a sound idea. Having multiple groups of individuals who can receive input, categorize them, document the problems and solutions and, effectively amplify the highs and lows of the Indic experience on WMF sites is a good step. At some point I'd like to understand more about the plans to identify these individuals, the training they will receive (which, as you pointed out earlier, would be Pavanaja's goal) and, how would one measure the effectiveness of the Ambassadors and, the effort as a whole. During GNUnify 2013 in February you mentioned that the A2K program was having a lot of ideas which were at that point nebulous. Now that there seems to be a structured roll-out, in terms of organization staffing and, initiative plans, it would good to understand the objectives for 2013/2014. -- sankarshan mukhopadhyay <https://twitter.com/#!/sankarshan> _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiaemail@example.com To unsubscribe from the list / change mailing preferences visit https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
