Localization of OLPC/Fedora To Indonesian Language

I had create a complete set of Indonesian PO files from OLPC localization project.

Unfortunately there is no team manager of Indonesian language localization project.

The procedure to become the team manager is difficult and complicated.

Where should I send the PO files?

Thank you.

Sorry to barge here, but we are currently trying to set up an alternative to solve these kinds of issues and also allow online translations (problem is we need to test & establish procedures). So I would suggest filing a ticket in following the currently established procedure. Other alternatives (like sending them through email, posting on the wiki, etc) are likely to cause more confussion.
If all goes as planned, by friday we should have the alternative ready and a proper announcement made in the Localization page. BTW, registering in this wiki would also be a good thing to do as a contact point. Cheers --Xavi 09:52, 16 October 2007 (EDT)

We need a box of 5 B2-1s and another of machines nearest to production unit. We will be setting up a OLPCPH XO machine laboratory for developers.

The Curriculum Jam was not successful but we are now moving on to make new things up. Mike Kouklis was assigned to create curriculum.

Task Tracking stuff

I've got a general brainstorm page up to discuss requirements for a task tracking system (simply put, what should it do?). Please check it out, give some feedback, propose some ideas, etc. --Nikki 11:34, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

Thanks a bunch. The feedback is appreciated (this sure gives me a lot to think about). --Nikki 14:52, 20 October 2007 (EDT)

Welcome back @home :)

Hi Mel, welcome back I'm tying to get some local Kalibo, Aklan teachers to make up something in the way of a curriculum/leason plan and hoping the pilot project will be held down here but without them actually having seen a XO-1 and played around with it, the only thing I could suggest is 1) spencer's cards (speed math) as a html table or AbiWord doc. 2) Word of the week as heard on the radio sample "Presidential Pardon?" older kids or Kokoy Darna ... younger kids. ie. they pull a word out of a jar and write a paragraph or two about it or what they think that the word meens. the classmates would write the words heard and place in the jar.

Please if you happen too make it to Boracay then please stop by the Aklan special education center it's less than 5 minute from the Kalibo airport. --Chief Mike 02:49, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
PS My phone number and address is on my user page if need it :) ,sorry but I don't SMS-text :(

Problem is most accesable comp's here have very slow downloads times. I tried download of GTK+ for four hours then power failure lights went out so lost the file was thinking about asking someone to burn a CD-Rom with XO-1 emulation vice trying and failing another download attempt. Another possible problem is small physical ram (128-256MB) on most mochine's (excuse my sometimes puposefully :) mis-spelling) sorry i had problems with syntax on IRC (freenode-site asking my OLPC password then kicking me out soon after I entered username/PW I'll try again tomorrow though as for tonight I think I better go home now my times up at I-C@afe here "Bukas Na!" --Chief Mike 10:43, 30 October 2007 (EDT)

Jam in a box ?

Hi Mel,
I've been talking to a lot of people around here lately and would really like to host a Media-Jam(Press conference/public demo "I do understand what a jam is supposed to be but I'm just thinking out of the box on this one") here in Kalibo, Aklan during the Ati-Atihan third week of January just before Australia's event.
Would it be at all possible to get a kit(or ??) then send it on to Melbourne ?

I know you are all very busy xmas rush? but hope that we can make this could happen :)

IMSA mention?

Might be cool if you mentioned IMSA somewhere on your userpage. But then, I'm biased. -- ScottSwanson 00:19, 11 January 2008 (EST)

Thanks for adding this! -- ScottSwanson 02:16, 23 January 2008 (EST)

Add COGG to grassroots groups?

In the list of grassroots groups with which you are affiliated, perhaps the Chicago group should be added? -- ScottSwanson 02:18, 23 January 2008 (EST)

Of course I'll write anything you want me to write!

I'd be happy to write anything for any purpose about this project. Say the word, general topic, give me a word count guideline, and a deadline (very important!) I love to write, and this project has me super-excited, so absolutely. Count me in. :D User: KayTi

Re: Main Page Redesign

It looks good, I like it. It's definitely something that would be good to poke at and play around with a bit. I don't think I can hang around much after the Support Gang meeting on Sunday though - I'm actually leaving 1cc at around 5:00pm on Sunday (don't want to force other Oliners to stay too long, I do need a ride back to campus, plus homework).

--Nikki 22:39, 25 January 2008 (EST)

I added it to LiveCd, and dusted a bit. Cheers, MitchellNCharity 20:57, 29 January 2008 (EST)


Hey I got your reply. I'm interested in working in both. I love programing just fine however I like testing as well. I would be more then happy to assist you mentoring the little ones on filling bug reports. Do you have a system in place besides wiki? I have extensive background in bug reports as a developer myself I know what information is needed to get the issue resolved and faster. I also saw mention of an chat system on the laptop that would allow the users to chat. Is it possible to join as a moderator to keep it safe. Now especially with the laptop being offered to the general plublic it is important to keep it safe from sexual predictors.
