How to ?

Mahitgar from Marathi Wikipedia
If I analyse  Marathi language unicode Websites other than Marathi Wikipedia , most of them(99%)  are drupal(cms)  based and many of them are quite popular community discussion sites.

Many of the readers coming from such sites usualy complaint saying that they find our(mediawiki)  brackets (over all  wiki mark up confusing).

What kind of help we can offer at wikis to new comers coming from drupal cms? any other indian languages has got similler experiences?

Dear all,

This is a formal announcement of Drupal Sprint India event happening

Announcing Drupal Sprint India, a gathering of Drupal enthusiast from
all over India, to contribute to Drupal development.

Drupal is probably the best community driven CMS in open source.
Community driven softwares need community contributions for regular
enhancements and this is your chance to contribute and gain karma.
Drupal sprint India is a two day non-stop event where Drupal
developers, documentation and translation guys will get together to
enhance Drupal. We will have code sprints, documentation sprints as
well as translation sprints.

Join Documentation sprint to document Drupal. Documentation sprint
will be headed by Addison Berry, Drupal documentation project lead.

Those interested in localization can join the party to translate
Drupal to local languages.

You need not have *any experience* with enhancing Drupal before hand,
even newbies are invited.

That is not all, we have more in store for you.

Got any Drupal success story to share or you have put Drupal to any
innovative use or any magnificent case study where you have integrated
Drupal with third party web services or web sites? This is the time to
showcase this. Parallel to sprint, we will hold talks and workshops to
showcase the capabilities of Drupal beyond CMS to build website. If
