Hello Valerie and all SignWriting List members,
I was very relieved to hear the excellent news that the Wikipedias in
SignWriting will not be removed! In fact, I didn't know I was taking that
risk. I am happy to know that I will be able to run the project of
publishing articles in Libras.
I look forward to starting the project with students from SignWriting
courses, aiming to publish articles in Libras for the Wikimedia Incubator.
