The community for the to be created Pontic Wikipedia, are eager for their project to start. Zaharias has been in contact with me regularly to finalise the issues around the approval process. I came to appreciate him as a hard working Wikimedian. Today he popped up again and mentioned that they have started the process of choosing their admins and bureaucrat. They want to be ready for the moment when they can finally start for real.
Having learned about their election, I am happy to endorse Zaharias for the role of bureaucrat. I hope that they can soon start in earnest.
