I am a newbie to Wikimedia-India. I have been working with the Wikisource
community since my GSoC
intern started. First of all, I think this project is a really nice
opportunity to increase our visibility.
I also request Ansuman to be a bit more civil. Being nice and respectful
doesn't hurt. Such kind of behavior
is not acceptable in a mailing list where everyone is volunteering just out
of interest. Also, in the 10 months
that I've been with Wikimedia, I am yet to see such rudeness on the mailing
