How can I convert/export large amount of wiki pages to xml files? And
how to use the API:data formats?

This is an email Mel originally wrote, but we wanted to make sure it gets
out before POSSE Doha wraps, so I'm sending it for her.
Hi, everyone - I wanted to explain some recent activity on the Sugar on a
Stick spins page that I've pushed. The patch updating the website for the
current release is actually the work of Affan Syed, Saquib Razak andCitizen Ben
They're part of http://teachingopensource.org/index.php/POSSE_Doha, a
workshop in Qatar we're running for local faculty who are interested in
having their students contribute to open source projects as part of the
classes they teach. As part of this, we (Sebastian Dziallas and I) wanted
them to have the experience of making their own first contribution to an
open source project, so we asked them to update the website for us - and
The professors themselves may or may not (probably not, since classes start
again soon) continue to contribute to Fedora Websites, but they may be
bringing their students into the Fedora community next school year, so if
you're interested in talking with them about that, feel free to drop them a
Saquib Razak saquibrazak(a)gmail.com - I teach introductory programming
courses and want to introduce open source development to students. (Mel
notes: If you're working on an open source project that could use the
efforts of about 20 new contributors who have completed basic programming
courses (but may be new to large-scale open source software development) for
a semester - maybe 5 hours of work a week per student - and are willing to
take the time to mentor/guide them and build documentation on how they can
get started with your project, email Saquib.)
Citizen Ben ctzenben(a)gmail.com - I work on Arabic human language technology
and am interested in expanding Arabic Wikipedia by Machine Translation. (Mel
notes: Ben's questions to Sebastian and myself over lunch centered around
community dynamics - they're machine-translation researchers asking "how can
our work with language engines be useful towards building an Arabic
Wikipedia community?" He and his team can automatically create Arabic
Wikipedia pages from English ones, and vice versa, and automatically analyze
the quality of a translation, but he doesn't have Wikipedia or open source
community experience to figure out how to make this work useful to the
relevant communities. If you can help him get started, let him know.)
Affan Syed (affan.syed(a)nu.edu.pk): I am an Assistant Professor in the EE
department at FAST-NUCES (Islamabad Campus
I wlll be teaching courses on Embedded Systems and Distributed Computing in
SP 2011. I am looking at Eucalyptus and similar open source projects as a
*possibility* to get my students to work with (but unlikely that they will
go beyond getting it deployed) for a FA2011 course on cloud and mobile
computing. But I am open to other options for my above courses. (Mel notes:
if you're working on cloud and interested in academic collaborators, get in
touch with Affan - he's said everything else I would have written to
introduce him already. :-)
We've also been working with Bilal Zafar from USC who teaches more towards
the hardware side of things and is interested in what's going on with
teaching open hardware platforms (beagleboard, arduino, etc), so email
bzafar(a)usc.edu if you're interested in talking with a professor about that.
This has been your friendly semi-regular education-stuff interruption from
Mel and Sebastian. Carry on. :-)
I don't know how to report errors in the fedoraproject english version
website and I will try this way:
I dowloaded from Transifex fedora-web.master-fedoraproject.bg.po file.
fedoraproject.org/po/fedora-web.pot (1055 entries)
In this .po file,
1. line 2814:
Chris Bredesen is a Java developer from Ft. Lauderdale who uses Fedora
as his primary development platform. Chris gives his top 5 picks of
tools in Fedora for Java development, as well as advice for Java
developers considering a move to Fedora.
and line 2850:
Chris Bredsen is a Java developer from Ft. Lauderdale who uses Fedora as
his primary development platform. Chris gives his top 5 picks of tools

considering a move to Fedora.
are the same but with mistake in the Chris's last name.
2. line 2942, "... Java appolications ..."
Is there any way we can get a Fedora Official Torrent download option
instead of the direct download its doing now? I torrent much faster
than I direct download and I think it would be a very useful option.
(got it, you forgot the mailing list)

You didn't answer my question ;)
Should we generate new pot file each 2 monthes?

I was speaking in a case that the pot is up to date and we need to
correct only one string

There is one string that I can't get translated in any language, I am
not able to find the issue.
Look for "and others" in http://fedoraproject.org/uk/get-fedora
The markup looks like others. Any clue ?

Thank you for having reported that,
It appears to be correct under the big download button on the right.
I've added the website mailing liste.
Anyone from the website team could correct that? I am travelling right now.
Kévin Raymond (shaiton)
I am not able to establish an account to Fedora. That is why I can not use IRC.
I ordered these valures:
Full Name: Quido Otybela
Email: quoty(a)centrum.cz (2x)
Further I translated the picture to characters wiht the biggest care too.
But the system answered to me allways the same:
captcha: Icorrect value
and the account was not established, the operation ended repeatedly with failure.
I repeated this procedure many times without any success.
My email-address "quoty(a)centrum.cz" is ok and well tested.
What is wrong? I do not understand it at all.
Thank You very much for any advice.
this is not a request for help and I don't know whoelse send it to; if the address is wrong, please, forgive me.
I noticed that the page in the wiki about installing fedora on eeepc suggests to uninstall pulseaudio but it doesn't suggest how to deal with the various problems that come out after that.
So I suggest to change it, for the beginners' sake.
