Conceptually, this is similar to the effort made in India over the last
couple of years, and it is heartening that the failure here is not
representative of the end of the road.

However, the degree of buy-in from the institution, obvious in the remarks
made by the professor, as well as hints of a certain degree of commitment,
in this case to the subject matter, on the part of the active editors, is
telling. I am sure we may have had some examples of a similar nature here
too, but perhaps we tried too soon to attempt scaling it up.

There is mention of an 'official' input from Wikimedia, and there may be
some data there that will give us a clue about how the many difficult
bridges were traversed. If anyone from this list was involved, please do
share your experience.
