Thank you Ravi for making us aware that WMF is happily funding content generation (or in nicer term Content upload) as Asaf from WMF and User Blue Rasberry have suggested. This is a great news for my Gujarati wikisource community, whom I am including in this reply.
Dear Gujarati Wiki Community, Please visit the link in below email, where Wikimedia Foundation (shortly known as WMF) is suggesting that they are funding (in simpler term paying) for content upload. This is the task that we all are doing free of cost so far. Because you have uploaded hundreds (may be thousands) of pages so far as we have created 50+ books on gu.wikisource, all our efforts will be paid now by WMF (in fact should have been paid so far as well). If you have any doubt, reach out to User:Bluerasberry and User:Ijon on meta ( meta.wikimedia.org). Asaf (User:Ijon) clearly suggests that Bots are under the paid activity considered by WMF. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants_talk:APG/Proposals/2013-2014_round2/The_Centre_for_Internet_and_Society/Proposal_form#Q2c Get as much benefit you get of WMF's this offer. Hi Asaf, Can the community claim back the money that would have hypothetically been paid to if they applied for the grant before they started uploading the content of rare literature?
