I am pleased to inform you that the language committee is ready to
approve independent Maithili Wikipedia project.
In a related development, a separate mailing list for the language which
was denied earlier has been approved on my request for reconsideration. 
I just need an endorsement from Maithili language experts that the
painstakingly developed content in the incubator project
that of the language and NOT ANOTHER LANGUAGE.
I request help from any friendly quarter -- WMIN / CIS / other
volunteers in this direction.
 *Email for Language Committee Member WF Warburg*:
Hello Muzammil and Ganesh,
the activity of Maithili Wikipedia in Incubator is now acceptable for
The Language committee is willing to approve it, but usually for the
first Wikimedia project in a language, we contact a linguist or other
scholar who is an expert in the language, and ask him to verify that the
content in Incubator is indeed written in this language (as I already
explained to Ganesh when we talked in London).
Do you know any such linguists/expert on Maithili language which LangCom
could contact for this verification?
