with the recent linux distro's thaana enable keyboard is shipped, I have tested on ubuntu and fedora. this is a very good improvement, should have done this long ago. anyway so what's the next step? after having a few chats with people who are interested I decided to go on with localization project. been try'n to do it for long; but did not find the time. so where goes. tonight I signed up with the gnome translation project after having a look into the translation teams did not find an entry for thaana or dhivehi. so I thought i'd sign up and start. this is middle of the night; almost morning. and wala after about one hour or so my dear old friend inn calls up. hmmm! asking me about the mail. I was happy to find out he had already signed up for this and was waiting for an answer. this is good news. guess i am not the only one and even the first. this is good.
so what next? where do we go from here. I guess we need to start the work, first step is to create locale definition file for dv_MV. Once this is created then we have a start. next will be to find people and time to translate the apps. we don't need a very big team for this, but all the help we can get will be good. so anyone interested in the project (already couple of guys have talked to me on this over msn; which really got me started) drop me a mail or to inn. lets say a week from today we meet up; next week end.by then we all would have done our research and home works as well? i
