Re: request for disks

(from a discussion in debian-devel, where Ashish Bista from Central
Department of Computer Science and Information Technology, Tribhuvan
University, Nepal, was requesting for Debian CDs or DVDs)

Quoting Paul Wise (pabs@debian.org):

Debian (at least the installer) is already well localized in Nepali,
thanks to the efforts of the Nepalinux project
(http://www.nepalinux.org). The same project works on localization of
the major components of a distribution (GNOME, KDE, OO.o, Firefox, etc.).

They created a dedicated distribution, meant to be distributed on one
CD, and based on Debian and the Morphix installer (same technology use
for DzongkhaLinux 1.0 in Bhutan).

You may indeed want to get in touch with Nepalinux folks...
