<apeter> santhosh, we have already discussed and planned to have the FUEL... :) <j4v4m4n> santhosh: jinsbond007 apeter നമസ്കാരം [21:03] <apeter> നമസ്ക്കാരം <jinsbond007> j4v4m4n: ah finally, നമസ്കാരം :) <apeter> now things to discuss is when to have, who all to be invited for this meeting? I mean any language experts ... <apeter> what say? [21:04] <j4v4m4n> apeter: ഏതെങ്കലും സ്ഥലവും സമയവും നിര്‍ദ്ദേശിയ്ക്കൂ <apeter> j4v4m4n, jinsbond007 santhosh I was thinking whether we can have this during NITC meet? [21:05] ERC> /nick ജാവാമാന്‍ <apeter> is it possible?

      • ജാവാമ is an
   erroneous nickname

<apeter> what do you guys think? <santhosh> apeter: physical meaning required? <apeter> santhosh, yes <j4v4m4n> apeter: I will be in NITC from 31st Jan to 6th Feb

  • apeter has requested Rajesh to join

<j4v4m4n> santhosh: yes, especially if we are onvolving language experts [21:06]

  • apeter has requested Rajesh to join this online meeting

<j4v4m4n> santhosh: we can keep irc open as an option for people who cannot make it physically [21:07] <apeter> j4v4m4n, I agree with you :) <jinsbond007> j4v4m4n: santhosh when is fossmeet? [21:08] <santhosh> apeter: j4v4m4n, can we baseline our glossary? or do we need to get comments on the entries in offline way? <jinsbond007> I don't remember in feb or march? <j4v4m4n> apeter: but Feb first week would be too soon for arranging a meeting of this sort <apeter> jinsbond007, 4th-6th Feb <jinsbond007> ok <apeter> j4v4m4n, we shall give it a try.. <santhosh> such as, getting the comments in printed copies <jinsbond007> anyway, I won't be available for any physical meetings due to my busy schedule for I think some 4 months [21:09] <j4v4m4n> jinsbond007: we can do both as I mentioned <apeter> j4v4m4n, if its too much of inconvenience we shall postpond to 2nd or 3rd week Feb <j4v4m4n> jinsbond007: physical component has to be there

<santhosh> j4v4m4n: btw, by language experts, ആരെയാ ഉദ്ദേശിക്കുന്നതു്? കമ്പ്യൂട്ടറില്‍ മലയാളം ആദ്യമായി കാണുന്നവര്‍ക്ക് പ്രായോഗികമായി നിര്‍ദ്ദേശങ്ങള്‍ തരാന്‍ കഴിയുമോ? [21:11] <rajeshr> Hi Everybody <j4v4m4n> rajeshr: hi <santhosh> the contexts are completely different <apeter> hi rajeshr <rajeshr> Sorry for late! <apeter> rajeshr, no worries :) <jinsbond007> j4v4m4n: apeter first these people should know the translation and why we do it the way we do <santhosh> I am not sayin that they should know how to use computers in malayalam <j4v4m4n> santhosh: but most of them would have familiarity with computers <santhosh> but minimal exposure and introduction is required right? [21:12] <apeter> rajeshr, maybe you can give an idea about FUEL. How do you normally conduct the meet etc etc etc <jinsbond007> j4v4m4n: the familiarity I don't think is not to be with computer but the malayalam interface in computer and who are the in tented audience <rajeshr> okay apeter! [21:13]

      • santhosh (~santhosh@ has joined channel #smc-project

<j4v4m4n> jinsbond007: santhosh we should have normal computer users too, the idea is to get some kind of acceptance when people see experts are there in the list, though I agree, it may not be necessary <rajeshr> As we are from translation/localization filed we know some problem during trans

      • santhosh (~santhosh@ has quit: Quit: Leaving.

<rajeshr> one is of standadization and consistency <j4v4m4n> the idea is computer users, who are not net savvy and would not be able to come to an irc meeting for whatever reason should be involved [21:15]

      • sebinaj (~sebinaj@ has joined channel #smc-project

<santhosh> disconnected.. did somebody answer my qn? sorry <jinsbond007> j4v4m4n: I am not against involving them, in fact most of the time, we does consult people like hussain sir off the list <jinsbond007> sebinaj: welcome <j4v4m4n> sebinaj: hi <sebinaj> hi <apeter> hi sebinaj :) [21:16] <sebinaj> was struggling with the lost passphrase :D <sebinaj> problems of registering a nick <sebinaj> can i read the log? <j4v4m4n> jinsbond007: not just hussain sir, anyone interested in seeing Malayalam in computer should be given a chance to say their opinion <j4v4m4n> sebinaj: you could have logged in without password :) [21:17]

      • ershad (~ershad@ has joined channel #smc-project

<santhosh> j4v4m4n: thats what. we cannot get words contribution from people who are very new to computers <jinsbond007> j4v4m4n: anyway I guess we both got the point :)

  • j4v4m4n copying minutes on the wiki

<santhosh> and even if they give it will be out of context <santhosh> what I would suggest is this [21:18] <jinsbond007> my point was to use their expertise effectively, we should be able to give them an idea of what the interface is <santhosh> the FUEL program should have 2 parts <jinsbond007> and who are the supposed audience for the Malayalam interface <santhosh> one is a training(introduction) to all participants. say we conduct in an arts college [21:19] <santhosh> in the second part, or as part of the traning, we show the interface to them. ask them to use <santhosh> get their user experience suggestion <santhosh> I hope once they see applications in malayalam, naturally comments will come <apeter> rajeshr, any comments ? <santhosh> rather than giving a word list
