[African Wikimedians] Announcing a new sister project! Welcome, Abstract Wikipedia


(Apologies for cross-posting, and that you are likely not reading this message in your native language: translations of the full announcement may be available on Meta [1], and will be posted to all the wikis in the next few days. Please consider helping with translations in the meantime. Thanks!)

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees has approved a new sister project, temporarily titled “Abstract Wikipedia” [2].

Its goal is to generate baseline encyclopedic content in a multilingual fashion, allowing more contributors and more readers to share more knowledge in more languages. You can learn more on Meta [1] and can also join the new dedicated mailing list [3].

Talk to you soon!
