Thank you for the update and Thank you for the work all of you are doing for
Do your students have interest in improving Indic support in Free Software, in
One obvious area is translation, which I think is decent enough for Indic
support. Another good work done is by the folks who created the Hinglish
Keyboard Input scheme (Bolnagri).
But, for long, I've been curious on how we could improve other areas, like:
* Indic font rendering in PDF. Should we care? Is PDF deprecated ?
* Indic font rendering in Console and Pseudo Terminals.
* Indic dictionaries - I think this is something sorely sucky right now. To the
best of my knowledge, our lexical databases are lagging far behind and are
incomplete. And not everything is electronically available.
* Then there is auto translator, for Eng => Hin.
I should also disclaim that my knowledge on these subjects is very limited. I'm
just trying to see if there are others who could be motivated to steer in those
