  • Crowd sourcing project pages reviewed to fix the flow.
  • Requested community members & external resources to help us review the best books which should have a page in wiki
  • Out of copyright books list created to be pushed to wiki source.
  • Seeked further information on License issues – DLI and OUDL mark books as OUT_OF_COPYRIGHT which are questionable. Need better source to identify the books copyrights. \
  • Initiated tests and activities to push the books to Internet Archive & to Wiki commons
  • Requested help from community to get the commons books to wiki source.
  • Officially requested Prajavani and other news paper agencies to share the E-Book information under Creative Commons license to build wiki pages effectively.
  • Follow-ups done to check the status of content collaboration from news papers.
  • Tested article creation on wiki – moved the new page creation to sandbox as stub articles are a big no for Kannada Wiki. Using sandbox would be a best start to train new wikipedians to build a complete page before pushing the articles to main namespace.
  • Metadata review has been speeded up.
