> Hi Prakash and Kshitiz,
> Hope all is well?
> As you know we're putting a lot of effort into the Global Open Data Index
> (last years Census) this autumn, and we would like to get things updated
> and brushed off for Nepal. Would you - or any of your group members,
> friends or colleagues - be interested in making submissions for to the
> Index over the next week or so, so we can get Nepal up to date?
> The ways that you can contribute have slightly changed this year.  You can
> read up about it here:
> http://blog.okfn.org/2014/10/01/connect-and-help-build-the-global-open-data-index/
> and here is a video tutorial of how to get involved:
> http://blog.okfn.org/2014/10/09/this-index-is-yours/
> Beyond contributing datasets, we are also looking mentors and reviewers:
> Mentors support the Index in a variety of ways from engaging new
> contributors, mentoring them and generally promoting the Index in their
> community. Activities can include running short virtual “office hours” to
> support and advise other contributors, promoting the Index with civil
> society organizations – blogging, tweeting etc. If you would like to sign
> up, please fill in this form

> .
> Reviewers are specially selected experts who review submissions and check
> them to ensure information is accurate and up-to-date and that the Index is
> generally of high-quality. If you would like to sign up to be a Reviewer, please
> fill in this form
> <https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/forms/d/1WUwIiGRPpV3dw7MsUWVisaBZbKRSOQ2IXmgRt_cBW9E/viewform>.

> Hope you can help out, so that we can make sure Nepal is adequately
> represented in the coming Global Open Data Index presentation in November!
> If you have questions simply get in touch with me or the Index Community
> Coordinator, Mor Rubinstein, on mor.rubinstein at okfn.org

> PS: We would also love to include you in the communication around the
> Index. What did you think of your country's progress, or lack of progress,
> in 2014?  What is the most interesting development in open data in your
> country?  If you have any thoughts or reflections, please write in to
> emma.beer at okfn.org and we will be in touch.  If you are interested in
> writing up your experience for when the 2014 Index is officially published
> (in November), please also let us know.
