Debian/Ubuntu Translation/Localisation

  • Ubuntu Sanskrit Translators [https://launchpad.net/people/ubuntu-l10n-sa Launchpad]

  • Co-wrote a [http://lists.debian.org/debian-glibc/2005/10/msg00008.html Sanskrit (SA) language locale] with Christian Perrier (bubulle), which awaits inclusion in the Debian package : belocs-locales-data and also in package: locales (version: 2.3.5-6).

  • Translate for the Sanskrit localisation of packages in Ubuntu. Plan to increase volunteer translators for Sanskrit, a classical Indian language. Main impediments are its classical roots, lack of daily usage, with zero commercial value resulting in low interest as its practically considered a dead language by many people.

Ubuntu-IN Loco Team

Advocacy, Misc.

  • Various contributions in different Wiki's and Ubuntu mailing lists.
  • Advocate Ubuntu awareness whenever possible and have distributed my surplus Hoary, Breezy and Dapper CD's to many people locally and am happy to note that mostly students used it more than engineers.
  • Am trying to learn about packaging, testing and learning other technical details about Ubuntu and its relation with Debian and how they work in tandem.
