Hello Vishnu, I don't personally indicate A2K here, I did specify that this
is applicable for generally; i.e. also for the Chapter and other
communities. I also second Rahmanuddin Shaik for adding something like
Announcement: so that people are aware that this is just an announcement,
which indirectly means that your comments. We should also encourage people
to post their comments on some other place like Meta Wiki, Wikipedia, or
WMIN Wiki. This will also keep record of for all communication, and it will
also keep our inbox clean. I have seen recently that many mails from the
Wikimedia India mailing list reach spam list instead of inbox, and that's
really sad. We end up missing various mails.

I'll also echo what Arun and all have expressed here. I'm really happy and
thankful that everyone came up here with your opinion :)



Regards,
Karthik.
