You may be familiar with Wikipedia, the free volunteer-written
encyclopedia, which exists in many languages.  The English Wikipedia
is at http://en.wikipedia.org/

There is currently a proposal for a Wikipedia in American Sign
Language, and I thought that the members of the SignWriting community
should be aware of this.

The proposal is here:

It would be great if you could share this information on SignWriting
forums and mailing lists, and please comment at the proposal page
(just click "edit").

I am not a sign language user myself, but I thought I could help in
informing you of this proposal.  Feel free to ask me if you have any
general questions relating to what Wikipedia is or how it works.

Thank you
