OK, but there is a difference between supporting Amharic websites, and
actually having Amharic UI ;-)

It may be worth taking a look at
which is an Indian multi-language liveCD also based on Morphix. Their
extra apps include: Yudit, gtranslator, pfaedit, kbabel, gettext, balsa.
as well as a number of other fonts etc.
This is probably something we might want to take some more time doing,
ie. for now, perhaps just including whatever font-packages exist already
for debian, as well as language versions of OpenOffice, and if possible
also of balsa and mozilla.
Then next year, I'd love to discuss how I could perhaps make debian-NP
the basis of an effort to produce a more comprehensive multi-language
BTW, I'll be attending the WSIS, at the Danish Foreign Ministries
presence, and would love to hand out debian-NP CD's there. Any idea how
to get hold of them when they arrive?
