Abstract (maximum 500 words)

A look at various tools in use around Indic Wikipedia, various technical tasks needed to be done on Indic Wikipedias. More of sharing knowledge and best practices of tools across projects / technology to put in use across Indic Wikipedia.Mostly will be covering Tamil Wikipedia as case study since most of my work / knowledge is around there but not limited to it.Also ways to encourage technical non-editors into Indic Wikipedias and role technical folks can play without editing.Large number of techies do not enter Indic Wikipedia due to linguistic incompetence(Myself prime example till 2010),this will also aim spreading awareness among them, that they have a role to play
