Debian/Ubuntu Translation/Localisation

  • Ubuntu Sanskrit Translators [ Launchpad]

  • Co-wrote a [ 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).

  • Translates for the Sanskrit localisation of packages in Ubuntu. Plans to increase volunteer translators for Sanskrit, a classical Indian language. Main impediments are its classical roots, lack of regular usage. Low, almost zero commercial value has also contributed to the low interest and is considered a dead language by many people.

Advocacy, Misc

  • Various contributions in different Wiki's, community groups/teams and Ubuntu mailing lists.
  • Time-permitting, hopes to pitch in with tasks and be useful to the Motu's by trying to learn about packaging, testing, other technical details about Ubuntu, its relation with Debian and how they work in tandem.
  • Advocates Ubuntu awareness whenever possible by distributing surplus Hoary, Breezy and Dapper CD's to many people locally and found students using it more than engineers in the IT industry.
