Hi all !

My apologies about the lack of updates.

We are still working in order to complete the lists of monuments.
Every département (see [[Departments of France]] on English Wikipedia)
will have his full list. In order to have lighter lists, we are making
lists by cities, when they have 20 monuments or more. The hardest is
the geolocalization.

Wikimédia France has hired new employees, and our program manager is
going to contact the French Ministry of Culture, in order to make of
the WLM operation more official in France.

Our website is now operating (with some updates to make, welcome
Russia). Currently, it have only one page, but we have started to talk
about it.

I'm going to mobilize our communication group, in order to launch the
press release, the posters and the documentation. For the financial
part, we have to justify all our outcomes. The participation of
Wikimédia France to WLM may be a material support ; printings for
