Its hard to meet these goals. And you want more ambitious goals? Its
better not to write what we can't do.

You are welcome to start one. We are lacking people to do existing
works in Debian-IN some how we managed to do the ttf-indic-fonts to
new fonts-* naming scheme but we don't have any one to test. Kartik is
doing his best to review our work but alone its too burden for him
also. We have this in TODO but frankly we don't have enough time.

Do one thing create a wiki page and link it from DebianIndia page may
be some one else also can volunteer.

Frankly saying all these DebianUtsav should advertise Debian-IN than
trying to do ruby packaging or something else. (But again its hard to
find really motivated guys so we are better this way than worsening
our situation trying to get more people)
