As most of you know we decided already to be present in this conference
and promote Fedora. Event page is available At .
*1. Represented Fedora @ conference.*
We started planning for this event with Fedora Ambassador group well 2
months in advance and designed T-shirts for branding Fedora as a best
platform for Language computing. This T-shirt was distributed to all active
contributors to promote message Fedora perfect from language computing
perspective. Most of them were available in conference wearing this
T-shirt, it truly made people aware regarding yes Fedora takes care for
language computing aspects and proud for same.
I met number of people in conference and talked on how can Fedora help
them. Specifically mentioned language team is very active in Fedora, most
of the innovations happened first in Fedora including IBus, Harfbuzz and
Updates regarding Fonts also gets in quickly in Fedora. Fedora i18n team
weekly meets AT #fedora-meeting on Tuesday 06:00:00 to 07:00:00 UTC and
discuss open issues.
Analysed issues mentioned by ShivaKumar K.M
<http://fuelproject.org/gilt2014/speaker#ShivaKumar_KM> regarding corpus
processing and requested Biraj Karmakar
<http://fuelproject.org/gilt2014/speaker#Biraj_Karmakar> to test Fedora 21
for Bengali and provide some report.
Parag <http://fuelproject.org/gilt2014/speaker#Parag_Nemade> given talk
on "*How to create hunspell dictionary on Fedora"*. It was very well
attended talk from audience. They learned practically on how to make
hunspell dictionary from simple word-list and see it working. It increased
there interest on hunspell dictionary. I talked with Omshivaprakash and he
suggested it is possible to get some online tool for maintaining hunspell.
This is the same thought we were thinking from last couple of months also
discussed same with Libreoffice Caolan. Already some work has been done and
soon will publish same.
Parag also demonstrated wordxtr package avaialable in Fedora. He
demonstrated it with html page and shown how quickly one can extract words
Wanted to distribute some Fedora stickers but somehow missed to collect
some from Siddhesh before he moves to Phnom Penh, Cambodia for FAD.
Discussed with Arky about how much language support Firefox OS does has
and they also facing same issues which we were face some years back. In
Fedora now we have nicely written criteria for language support. I
mentioned him, link is here
