  • There are issues with Tamil 99 keyboard which is implemented through IME. Met Tony thomas and found out where the changes have to be made. Then met Mr. Shrinivasan who taught me how to fork, make necessary changes and create a pull request in github.
  • Discussed about many tools required for tamil wikisource
  • Got deeper understanding about the fuctioning of wmf and wiki communities.


I am exposed to people working in Bengali and malayali wikisource. They are the active wikisource communities in India. The kind of work they do, inspires to do much in Tamil wikisource too. Met people from Chennai working on different language projects. Hence now it may be possible to arrange a local meet up in Chennai.
