I communicated a bit late to Ankit about my telephonic conversation with
you. Who should be organizer or not a organizer is a small issue, more
important things are event, completion of review etc.
Physical presence or sharing expenses - just more than a week before we
got to know about the event and you can understand that in that short
period it is difficult for any open source project. If communicated at
least by informing us about probable event dates at least 3-4 weeks before,
it would be much easier for us to be an active part of the event.
No problem at all. Since there was too much questions on "organizer
, I wanted to clarify the efforts made .
I don't think FUEL ever planned to grow community around each
Rather we try to work with the existing language community working
generally in open source field along with like minded different
organizations. Growing community for each language under FUEL is not a
solution at all. So in this case at present for Malyalam SMC is the
community and ICFOSS is the organization who is helping us. Likewise, as
you announced in the FUEL GILt conference 2013, if ICFOSS decides to do for
it Hindi, I would like to get help from existing Hindi community working in
the field of foss localization.
Thanks Rajesh for making it clear .
