(keeping CC for the moment. I suggest to keep -project CC'ed as long as the topic is still close to Google Summer of Code) Quoting Martin Michlmayr (firstname.lastname@example.org): > * Gasper Zejn <email@example.com> [2006-05-02 22:36]: > > I intend to apply for Google's summer of code for Debian's I18N > > infrastructure plan.

I was thinking about GSoC for the recurrent topic of i18n infrastructure. However, our ideas about it are currently not clear. The planned i18n meeting in Extremadura/Spain next September is mostly aimed at drawing these ideas into a real plan to have something setup. I also want to take the opportunity of the Debconf next week to throw out early ideas and prepare that meeting. Up to now, various existing solutions have been evaluated and discussed, such as Pootle, transdict or even Rosetta. But, my own personal opinion is that going for this or that tool befre having a clear idea of what we need is a bit wrong. In short, I would have hard times writing down a "project" with a clear goal, and probably even more hard times mentoring it ( but that could be done by someone else), mostly because low availability during summer time. So, I can't refrain anyone to go along with this but I'm unsure about the timing.
