<santhosh> binnyva: welcome :)
<binnyva> santhosh: :-)
* qwebirc48660 has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
<apeter> hearty welcome to all our new members :)

* unni (~unni@59.93.7.70) has joined #smc-project
<arkarjun> thanks.. apeter. i'm arjun from palakkad. doing my BE(1st year) at RVS cbe.
<rajeeshknambiar> arkarjun: welcome

<santhosh> sebinaj: yes 
<apeter> guess baijum is away 
<santhosh> baijum: ping :)
* praveenp has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
<maheshmohan> maheshmohan, I'm Mahesh from Thiruvananthapuram. Doing my BSc in Computer Science at University Institute of Technology
<arkarjun> rajeeshknambiar :) though not soo new to smc
<rajeeshknambiar> SMCയുടെ സംഭാവനകളില്‍ എടുത്തു പറയേണ്ടവയില്‍ ഒന്ന് മലയാളം റെന്‍ഡറിങ്ങാണ്
<manojkmohan> i am manoj . from vidya engg colge, thrissur .
<sebinaj> hi baijum ഞാന്‍ എസ്എംസിയിലേക്കു് വന്നു് അധികം കഴിയുംമുമ്പേ ബൈജൂനെ കാണാണ്ടായി. 
<santhosh> let us move to next agenda, as rajeeshknambiar started - smc projects 
<apeter> yup
<sebinaj> k
<rajeeshknambiar> rendering in simple terms means displaying the content,characters and combinations of them properly
<rajeeshknambiar> as you all know, 2 main free software desktops are KDE and GNOME
* santhosh has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
<Anoop> k'
<rajeeshknambiar> GNOME is built on top of a GUI toolkit called GTK+ and KDE is built on another one called Qt
* qwebirc87877 (ca58e6b2@gateway/web/freenode/ip.202.88.230.178) has joined #smc-project
<rajeeshknambiar> Indic language rendering is a very complex one compared to european languages, mostly because combination of characters form a totally different visual representation
<rajeeshknambiar> initially Malayalam rendering was not good in any of the free software stack
* ershad has quit (Quit: Leaving)
* ershad (~ershad@14.194.67.76) has joined #smc-project
<rajeeshknambiar> to make the desktops and web browsers usable for Malayalam rendering, we had to fix both GTK and Qt, as they do the rendering
<rajeeshknambiar> റെന്‍ഡറിങ്ങ് പിഴവുകള്‍ പരിഹരിക്കുന്നതില്‍ സുറുമ സുരേഷേട്ടന്റെ പങ്കു വളരെ വലുതാണ്
<anivar> pango is the rendering engine used in Gnome 
<rajeeshknambiar> GTK uses pango as the rendering engine, so does Firefox, Iceweasel etc
<rajeeshknambiar> Qt apps and browsers like Konqueror uses Harfbuzz as the rendering engine now
<Anoop> which rendering engine in KDE ? 
<anivar> Attn: Vidya students:  sureshettan joined in SMC from a software freedom day celebration in widya Engg college in 2006 
<rajeeshknambiar> Anoop: KDE is built on Qt, which uses Harfbuzz
<rajeeshknambiar> Pango will also use Harfbuzz as the shaping engine
<baijum>  http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/HarfBuzz
<Anoop> ok thanks
<rajeeshknambiar> now, we have a decent Malayalam rendering on both toolkits
<unni> yes and Qt is still showing some problems while rendering (very very small ones)
<rajeeshknambiar> unni: what issues? could you explain?
<apeter> unni, guess its the issues with ര, right?
<Appu> AFAIK, pango is already using harfbuz
<unni> rajeeshknambiar, nothing really noticeable, but in some cases there seems to be trailing control character, and yes sometimes with ര
<unni> i'll post some shots. I encountered it at work
<anivar> rajeeshknambiar, harfbuzz have issues in complex conjunct formation 
<rajeeshknambiar> unni: ok - we already have a fix for that issue, but not sure whether Qt 4.7 has incorporated it. can someone try Qt 4.7 and report back?
<anivar> rajeeshknambiar,  no it is not fully fixed yet 
* baijum has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
<apeter> rajeeshknambiar, I can test next week and revert
<rajeeshknambiar> anivar: all right, guess I'll prod Lars again
* swetha has quit (Quit: Page closed)
* qwebirc87877 has quit (Quit: Page closed)
* santhosh (~santhosh@117.202.132.223) has joined #smc-project
<santhosh> connection lost :(
<rajeeshknambiar> along with rendering, another important one is unicode fonts
* qwebirc23894 (75cc79d6@gateway/web/freenode/ip.117.204.121.214) has joined #smc-project
* baijum (~baiju@110.225.240.67) has joined #smc-project
* santhosh_ (75ca84df@gateway/web/freenode/ip.117.202.132.223) has joined #smc-project
<rajeeshknambiar> all the fonts SMC maintain are present in major distros like Fedora, Debian etc
<santhosh> http://wiki.smc.org.in/Fonts
<rajeeshknambiar> we used to keep a separate repository for many of the softwares including fonts, but now most of them are available right away in your package manager
<anivar> http://wiki.smc.org.in/%E0%B4%A8%E0%B4%BE%E0%B4%B4%E0%B4%BF%E0%B4%95%E0%B4%95%E0%B5%8D%E0%B4%95%E0%B4%B2%E0%B5%8D%E0%B4%B2%E0%B5%81%E0%B4%95%E0%B4%B3%E0%B5%8D%E2%80%8D
<anivar> സ്വതന്ത്ര മലയാളം കമ്പ്യൂട്ടിങ്ങിന്റെ നാഴികക്കല്ലുകള്‍ ഈ ലിങ്കിലുണ്ട് 
<santhosh> I think if we go on explaining the projects, it will lot of time. right?
<santhosh> shall I ask the participants to read about them from our wiki ? and go ahead with ongoing projects?
<rajeeshknambiar> we can move on to next item
<apeter> yes please
<rajeeshknambiar> and come back with questions if any
<santhosh> many of you will be interested in participating in some of the future , started projects
<anivar> and add you can find a general FAQ at http://wiki.smc.org.in/FAQ
<santhosh> one of the biggest project that we are doing now a days is silpa project. it was a small project but now that itself is a another project in Savannah
<santhosh> http://smc.org.in/silpa/
* qwebirc46493 (75cfa4e9@gateway/web/freenode/ip.117.207.164.233) has left #smc-project
<santhosh> The project aims to build an indic language computing toolkit
* Neethu has quit (Quit: Page closed)
* Salil (7aa7f1b3@gateway/web/freenode/ip.122.167.241.179) has joined #smc-project
<santhosh> by incorporating all the projects we did so far and as a platform for any future project in this area
<santhosh> all are requrested to explore the features and documentation in http://smc.org.in/silpa/ after the meeting. The project requires many developers 
<santhosh> I am not listing the tasks here, anybody interested please contact me after the meeting.
<santhosh> requires good amount of knowledge in Python, Javascript, Indic Languages.
<santhosh> or atleast passion to learn the above stuff :D
<anivar> Ongoing tasks in SMC project is listed at https://savannah.nongnu.org/task/?group=smc 
<baijum> santhosh Do you have any plan to make it a GNU project ?
<santhosh> baijum: which project? silpa?
<baijum> I mean Silpa 
<anivar> you can find may open projects in the savannah listing 
<baijum> yes
<santhosh> baijum: well, I did not think about it. do you see any advantage?
<anivar> santhosh, any questions ? we have to move faster 
<santhosh> Another project we are doing now is pypdflib, http://github.com/santhoshtr/pypdflib 
<baijum> santhosh: being part of official GNU OS, that's the advantage :) GNU projects normally need to make very high quality...
* meHrishi (~chatzilla@110.225.60.32) has joined #smc-project
<anivar> baijum, lets discuss it separately after finishing the agenda 
<santhosh> well, now a days savannah projects also code review. They reviewed the silpa code before approving it as savannah project 
<baijum> anivar: that's fine
<meHrishi> hi
<rajeeshknambiar> meHrishi: welcome
<manojkmohan> meHrishi: hi
<santhosh> And as anivar pointed out if you are looking for project ideas, have a look at our task listing  https://savannah.nongnu.org/task/?group=smc 
<santhosh> please note that many of the projects we are doing are not limited to Malayalam computing
<santhosh> Once we do that all other languages are getting the benefit.
<anivar> meHrishi, വന്നല്ലോ ഇനി പാക്കേജിങ്ങ് ചര്‍ച്ച തൊടങ്ങിയാലോ ? അതിനു മുന്‍പ് പ്രൊജക്റ്റുകളെപ്പറ്റി എന്തെങ്കിലും ചോദ്യങ്ങളുണ്ടോ ? 
<santhosh> Same is the case if any developer from other langauge does these projects
<santhosh> so we keep an language neutral page for listing all indic computing projects. see it here http://www.fosscommunity.in/wiki/Projects/TaskList
<santhosh> മീറ്റിങ്ങ് വളരെ ഫോര്‍മലാണെന്നു തോന്നുന്നുണ്ടോ? :) feel free to ask anything!
<anivar> anilankv, Anoop apeter arkarjun arunkrishnan_4 binnyva ershad jaisuvyas maheshmohan meHrishi Polar qwebirc23894 Salil sebinaj Shiju unni  : Any Questions about projects ?
<Appu> santhosh: can you explain what problem "pypdflib" is trying to solve?
<meHrishi> നാളത്തെ വിക്കിപ്പീഡിയ പഠനശിബിരത്തിന്റെ കാര്യത്തിന് കോഴിക്കോട് പോയതായിരുന്നു. അതാ വൈകിയത് 
<ershad> anivar: No :)
<Anoop> No questions from my side :)
<santhosh> Appu: In one line : A pdf rendering library which can take the advantage of Pango rendering library to render all complex scripts of the world. The exising libraries fails to render complex scripts such as Malayalam properly.
<arkarjun> from my side also. it will be gud if this matter is available afterwards also.
<baijum> http://www.google.com/buzz/santhosh00/AEaYgQxLQpD/santhoshtr-pypdflib-new-project-started-solution
<meHrishi> anivar: nothing frm my side also

<jaisuvyas> anivar: Nothing yet.
<manojkmohan> i want to know more about deb packaging 
<santhosh> manojkmohan: we have more than 10 wishlist bugs in debian to package our projects 
<unni> have some specific questions on pypdflib, but that can be asked in the list. so lets move on
<santhosh> packaging requires some amount of learning the debian packaging process(same is the case for Fedora)
<unni> santhosh, can u post a link to that wishlist?
<santhosh> If you are interested in becoming a debian packager and its maintainer, praveen can guide you
<manojkmohan> santhosh: k
<santhosh> unni: need to digg.. 2 mins
<Salil> pypdf wish list is in TODO file in package itself 
<Salil> *pypdf = pypdflib 
<santhosh> unni: l will get it for you later
<santhosh> പിന്നെ, പുതിയ പ്രൊജക്ട് ആശ്യങ്ങള്‍ ഉണ്ടെങ്കില്‍, മടിക്കാതെ മുന്നോട്ടു വരൂ :)
<santhosh> ആശയങ്ങള്‍*
<baijum> santhosh: Have a look at this idea and see whether we can follow this architecture/design or create another layer on top of pypdflib : http://www.xhtml2pdf.com/ idea summary:  HTML+CSS => PDF
