Re: Creating a Pali Tipitaka and Pali Literature Wiki-space
- Dear Ven. Nyanatusita, Gunnar and friends,
Bhante: I read with interest your intention to create a Pali Tipitaka
and literature wiki. I wish you every success in your endeavour. And
I urge anyone who is able to assist to help in the project.
Proofreading is not easy for a me, a beginner in Pali literature.
However, I have some questions about the Buddhajayanthi version
(BJV). How different is it from the Burmese CSCD? And, isn't Metta
Lanka already hosting BJV in roman and sinhala scripts?

I would appreciate feedback about creating a Pali Tipitaka and Pali
Literature Wikipedia like webspace. The aim would be to finish off
proofreading the largely unproofread digital Buddhajayanthi (now
available on the Metta Lanka and Journal of Buddhist Ethics website)
and creating a new completely free and uninstitutionalised Pali
Tipitaka and Pali Literature Wiki-space out of it by incorporating
all the readings from all available editions of Pali works and
manuscripts. Other digitalised Pali works, translations, etc, could
also be incorporated. It will need to be a moderated Wikipedia
though. Ven. Mettavihari, who is the organiser of the Buddhajayanthi
digital Tipitaka edition, is willing to provide the digital
Buddhajayanthi and a separate webspace for this purpose on the
condition that it will be a moderated Wikepedia. Qualified scholars
will need to oversee the input of readings and texts and see to it
that the texts will not be meddled with in the wrong way as
apparently happens in some Wikipedias.
