So, there are sufficient people to get this language version started, but there are two major tasks (language file translation/adaptation, choose a go-between) that haven't been met. Can we get them started? --Evan 21:44, 27 Aug 2005 (EDT)
Hi, Ori. Lots of good wikis aren't part of Wikimedia. --Evan 11:51, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
I know, but I think this one is so fundamental and has such a great potential to grow that maybe it should be a WikiMedia's sister project.Ori Mosenzon 12:14, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
Yes, agreed. My feeling has always been that the Internet deserves a diverse wiki ecology, not a Wikimedia monoculture. Wikitravel right now is a commercial venture, with 1 fulltime employee (me) and one halftime employee (Maj) working on 11 wikis, compared to two (3, now?) employees at Wikimedia working on 600+ wikis. That said, we have a close working relationship with Wikimedia projects and many (most...?) Wikitravellers are also Wikipedia or Wikimedia participants to a lesser or greater degree.
We already have an expedition underway to start a Hebrew Wikitravel. If you're interested look over the links Evan provided and the one I have and see if you'd like to sign up to help us get the Hebrew Wikitravel off the ground. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 14:04, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
