The Wikimedia Language Engineering team announced the launch of the
the pilot phase of the Language Maven outreach program during their
recent IRC office hour[1]. To kick-off the program, the team hosted an
online meeting with some of the Language Mavens where matters related
to the scope of the project were discussed. It was also proposed to
prepare checklists of the available tools and other related items that
can be used by the Mavens as ready-reckoners. Another meeting has been
set to be held during the month of May to be followed thereafter by
regular monthly meetings. The program has met with a positive response
and is expected to bridge the gaps that currently exist between the
Wikimedia projects in different languages. The summary of the
discussions can be found in the meeting notes[2]. Further discussions
will continue on the mediawiki-i18n mailing list.

We would also like to invite more participants into the program.

More details about the program can be found in the mediawiki page[3]
and questions can also be sent to the mailing list or directly to me
