Good point. :) GNOME has an Amharic interface (or has done a fantastic
job of fabricating a screenshot). Enrico showed me the info on it and
I feel pretty comfortable saying it's the only Amharic UI out there --
it's certainly the only one I've ever heard of. I have yet to try it

Yes. I ran into their stuff while I was searching for some HOWTOs on

Not yet. I'm a little worried as I haven't heard from anyone at LPI in
weeks and both myself and the Martin Michlmayr, the Debian Project
Leader, have sent them several emails. It's not time to get frantic or
anything -- that happens next week. :)
