Good to see Fedora Globalization meetup is happening!
Did you guys discuss the poor state of Fedora Indic L10n? In Pravin's blog
I did not see any mention about the current L10n status of Indic Language.
Yes, we did.
Blog not mentioning anything specific on Indic, since we actually worked on
global strategy for all languages.
I have been contributing to Fedora since past 9 years. In the last couple
of years, I observed that Indic contributors are gradually moving away from
it. Did we discuss, why Fedora is getting less attractive with respect to
Indic L10n? Is Fedora is not doing much to get the Indian volunteers for
L10n? Is popularity also counts here?
Yeah, you spotted exactly.
Trying to improve it from Fedora 24 onwards. Have big todo list for F24,
hoping it will improve this situation as well.
I think we need to introspect on these lines if we are interested to grow
the number contributors for Indic Languages.
Being one of the long time contributor to Fedora L10N, i think your inputs
will be very helpful to improve this situation. We already have some plans
in hand. Lets discuss further on this in FUEL conference.
If the Indian Languages are not of priority, then please ignore
Fedora does not decide priority for any language rather languages
contributor/community decide priorities for Fedora :)
I hope more Indian language contributors will come up soon and help to
improve this situation.
