Three recent blog posts may be of interest to some on this list:

1) Time for a Krio Wikipedia? (Krio is the main lingua franca of Sierra 
Leone, with an established written form. Should the nascent Wikipedia 
edition in this language be developed, especially with an eye to making 
health information in Krio more available?) 4 November 2014

2) Uganda ebola posters, in which languages? (Three posters about ebola 
from Uganda that found their way onto the internet had no language 
identification. They've been tentatively identified but still seeking 
confirmation) 6 November 2014
http://niamey.blogspot.com/2014/11/uganda-ebola-posters-in-which-languages.html

3) Does spelling matter in Bambara ebola materials? (A Bambara 
translation of an ebola poster did not use the standard orthography - 
this is more than a matter of spelling.) 24 November 2014
