Congratulations to the Gujarati Wikisource contributors on this important
milestone. Based on a brief visit to the site and also from Proofread
page stats <http://toolserver.org/~phe/statistics.php>, I found that Proofread
extension <https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Help:ProofreadPage_extension> has
not been used for this. I had the experience of setting up and using the
same on Telugu Wikisource. I think it will be useful and improve the
productivity of the team and would like to suggest the team to try it.
