Good Bye as CIS-A2K Program Director

Dear Wikimedians,

This is my last day as the CIS-A2K Program Director.

The last 2 years and 3 months have been immensely exciting with tons of
learning and work!

I have loved meeting many Wikimedians, face to face, across the length and
breadth of India. The interactions I had with many of you have been
immensely useful to my learning.

The diversity of our community and the Wikimedia projects in India is so
rich and intricate - I wish I could map out my entire set of impressions to
only give a slight glimpse of it!!

Signing off as the Program Director for now. See you on-wiki, here on the
lists and in real life whenever our paths cross.

A quick update: The next A2K Program Director selection is under process
and hopefully we should all be able to welcome the new incumbent in June,
2015. Until then the A2K team is being internally monitored by CIS
leadership.

Best wishes,
Vishnu

[Announcement] CIS-A2K Program Director Transition

Dear Wikimedians,

This is to bring to your notice the proposed change in leadership of the
CIS-A2K Program. The current Program Director, T. Vishnu Vardhan will be
transitioning by June 2015, due to health and personal concerns.

As many of you know, Vishnu has led the A2K Programme since February 2013.
We at CIS are working with Vishnu and the rest of the A2K team to ensure
smooth transition so that the momentum of the A2K program does not lose
pace.

We will soon be putting out an Advertisement for the next CIS-A2K Program
Director and will involve the community members and the Wikimedia India in
the selection process.

Best regards,

"Wikiproject on tour" proposal
To: Wikimedia Chapters cultural partners coordination <
cultural-partners <at> wikimedia.ch>

Hi all,

For International Mother Language Day at Catalan Wikipedia we have started
a *2 weeks challenge which aims to "double size" of the Wikipedia articles
of the 288 languages Wikipedia is in* (from Arabian to Zulu) [1]

It is a simple 2 weeks wikiproject and our idea is that it could
become a *Wikiproject
on tour* so when we finish it on March 8 some other language version of
Wikipedia could "take it" and start it and then for to weeks.

It's inspired on the  <at> Wearewikipedia project but instead of curating a
Twitter handle a language version "hosts" the project for two weeks.

If we can make this project tour a little bit all our mother languages
could got better coverages on several wikis.
