Other instructions




I endorse Ahmed's request. I'm excited to see that his submission on Arabic content and Wikipedia to the conference was already accepted. The conference seems to be in partnership with some very established institutions, and I think it's important that Wikipedia be part of conversations about the Arabic language. Ahmed is a dedicated community member, and I know he would be an excellent representative for the larger community and movement. I also think this serves as a great opportunity for the Egyptian user group to develop its network and explore potential regional partnership and collaborations.
