Wikipedia on the Indian subcontinent is important. All the Wikipedias can do with more readers, more editors and more attention.
The best 500 articles of the Malayalam Wikipedia have now been published on a CD. This project was presented at the Malayalam Wikipedia Meetup 2010 and it was announced on the blog of Santhosh Thottingal.
When you read the announcement, you will learn about the technical issues they faced including issues with Unicode. It is really nice that the software written in Python is available for use with other languages, my question is, is the software in English or does it need localisation..
