See also bug 45091 as the wiki doesn't exist.

(In reply to comment #2)

marking as invalid: The creation of this wiki was not approved by the
language
committee.
[It would also currently have no chance because of a lack of activity in the
test-project. Please address any questions on the page on Meta]

Amir, I put here a request for mailing list only after the consultation with you. Please check and let me know what makes my request invalid.

There is need to re-examine the refusal:

  1. Activity level has increased - 16 active users and about 60 overall users.
  2. Likelihood of the Wikipedia in the near future (see: http://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/09/08/a-focused-approach-for-maithili-wikipedia/)
  3. Growing social media activity for the Wikipedia: https://www.facebook.com/MaithiliWikipedia?fref=ts

Hi Muzammil,

  1. Activity level has increased - 16 active users and about 60 overall users.

Cf: https://tools.wmflabs.org/meta/catanalysis/index.php?cat=0&title=Wp/mai&wiki=incubatorwiki

There has been an increase in activity.

THO forwarded me an email regarding a reconsideration of this request, I personally see no issue with this and will deal with this.

@Muzammil: Who would the list administrators be now since the original request was made well over a year ago?

I think you can add me also an administrator for the list. I will discuss with Biplab to see if he too is interested as he is very active on the incubator project.

Thanks @Muzammil .....
ok add me too for the admin
