Re: Localizing New Debian Installer to Arabic
I will check out the code and start the translation effort. I am part of
an on-line community that are working on arabizing and adding arabic
support and awarness to the open source community (www.arabeyes.org).
How much work is it you think to add RTL to NEWT or is it to the
installer it self and is RTL alone is enough or we need BIDI ?
Thanks for you willingness to work on the RTL.
