Dear Rajesh,

Can I give out your email to Warburg either as reply-mail or on his talk page?

You might be asked a series of questions pertaining to the existing content on the incubator project, especially the fact that it is indeed Maithili.

Hi,

Thanks Sudhanwa jee for asking me to comment here.

I know Maithili and worked for Maithili Desktop with project like Fedora, Firefox, Libreoffice, Gnome, KDE. I am also associate with Maithili wikipedia process.

Amir also asked me for the feedback weeks before. This language is Maithili and I know the community working in Maithili Wikipedia. I think, Maithili Wikipedia creation should be approved.

    Dear Muzammil,
    You could try getting in touch with Prof.Uday Narayan Singh, a
    famous Maithili poet and linguist. See:
    http://www.udayanarayana.com/. His phone number and address are
    available from this site.

    Regards,
    Tejaswini

        Dear friends,

        I am pleased to inform you that the language committee is
        ready to approve independent Maithili Wikipedia project.[1]

        In a related development, a separate mailing list for the
        language which was denied earlier has been approved on my
        request for reconsideration. [2]

        I just need an endorsement from Maithili language experts that
        the painstakingly developed content in the incubator project
        (https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:PrefixIndex/Wp/mai)
        is that of the language and NOT ANOTHER LANGUAGE.

        I request help from any friendly quarter -- WMIN / CIS / other
        volunteers in this direction.

        Regards,
        Muzammil

        [1] *Email feom Language Committee Member WF Warburg*:

        Hello Muzammil and Ganesh,

        the activity of Maithili Wikipedia in Incubator is now
        acceptable for approval indeed.
        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?
        Best regards,
        MF-Warburg
