@Orbilius, I will get in touch with you to start working on the Italian
Case Study.

@Gerard: There aren't a lot of statistics but
http://francisco.dance/wikigrowth/ might help. If you check the statistics
for Wikisource, you will see that Indic Wikisources are the ones with the
maximum growth in the last year. These statistics aren't designed for
Wikisource but this still shows the value that the Indic communities see in
Wikisource especially when there is an unavailability of online sources
(Project Gutenberg etc.)
