        Dear All,

    Hi Anivar,

    Thank you very much for the initiative. This is indeed going to be very
    helpful for the FUEL Mobile module, as we had only one language (that is
    Marathi) evaluated for FUEL Mobile. Btw, do you guys have any public
    page where the details of this workshop is being provided? All I know
    about is, http://programs.icfoss.org/__wfm/about.html


Since this is an invitation only workshop, There is no public page yet
for the program.
the page you have linked is a separate program, and we are conducting
both of them together on same dates .

Thanks for the clarification.

Please share some report at least end of the event, if not in the beginning.

Sure .
As usual reports are always published after the event

        FUEL Mobile malayalam community review workshop is planned on March
        12th at Technopark Trivandrum.

    FUEL Project follows Select -> Translate -> Evaluate model to review and
    finalize the terminologies.

    To 'review', 'translation' needs to be completed.

    Yes, I am aware that translations are getting submitted on Zanata:

    (~ 87% completed)

We have competed 4 versions of FUEL Mobile translations by various set
of people (and many of them are not PO files). we will evaluate them in
the workshop and submit to upstream . What is available upstream now is
by anish , using Zanata.

I see. If you could send me those 4 completed versions of FUEL Mobile
translations, I can archive them in FUEL Git repository (with author
information as SMC or you or whoever has translated those) even if they
are not in PO file format.

End of the event, the final evaluated FUEL Mobile Malayalam translations
can be placed in the SVN repository where we archive all evaluated

All the inputs will be archived at our side as a part of this process. No need to worry about loosing them
You can pull them from this git repository when they are available online .
and SMC review of translations is yet to be completed prior to the program
As in any free software project reviewed translations will be usually committed upstream with all contributor details. Leave rest to the local community.


        The program is organised by ICFOSS, Swathanthra Malayalam Computing
        and Fuelproject


        If any one from FUEL community wants to participate in this program
        please drop a mail to contact@smc.org.in
        <mailto:contact@smc.org.in> <mailto:contact@smc.org.in

        or anivar@icfoss.in <mailto:anivar@icfoss.in>
        <mailto:anivar@icfoss.in <mailto:anivar@icfoss.in>>

    Both of the above statements contradict!

Please explain . I cant understand your point

The point here is, how can Fuelproject be an organizer (or one of the
organizers) where the members of Fuelproject itself are not well aware
of the event? More importantly, what's Fuelproject doing here in terms
of organizing this event?

As of  now Fuelproject does not have any role in organising the event apart from the point that we are using the context words developed by Fuelproject . Short version is Fuelproject is added as an organiser as a part of the efforts to build more visibility and recognition for Fuelproject

Since there is a question raised i will clarify the steps involved

1. We communicated the interest in working with Fuelproject nand using fuel-mobile in mid 2013 as a part of DIT-ICFOSS R&D project in collaboration with swathanthra malayalam computing and same was announced in FUEL-GLIT Conference 2013

2. From Last January I was in communication with Aniipeter from FUEL project , who is coordinating malayalam. We initially planned this workshop in February 1st week , then got shifted to march and we informed this  informally on February last week and by mail on March 1st. Hope any can share more on this

3. We requested for physical presence of Ani and whoever possible from FUEL core team and also requested partial support of travel expenses for participants. But since that was a late notice it was rejected and communicated over phone. And we really insisted on participation of ani peter  and asked her to try her best

4. Prior to sending the announcement mail and participant invites , I called Rakesh Ranjan from Fuel team and ensured his permission

Hope this clarifies.
