India presents both challenges and opportunities for the constantly evolving Wikimedia projects. Mediawiki can be leveraged with extensions to reach out to even farther communities that need help with technology to either get started or build projects.
For instance, languages like Meitei, Konkani and many others in India are keyed in with multiple scripts and the issue of which one to use can get tricky with cultural and regional implications. Technology or extensions on mediawiki can actually help provide methods to transliterate (as was done on Serbian wiki) and solve this issue. Here, not just transliteration, but intelligent replacement or to-and-fro parsing may be required for certain words or usage. There could be a machine learning aspect as well that needs to be explored.
Discussion on existing problems that many Indian language projects face. Identifying solutions and means to address the problems.
