Thanks for the info.  I'd propose we should start with a simple plural
formular for your language.  We can adjust it, if needed.

You now have commit rights as "netsasoft".  I just initalized the yast
translation files in
https://forgesvn1.novell.com/svn/suse-i18n/trunk/yast/am/po and we would
like you to start with some basic files such as "base.am.po" and
"installation.am.po".  Once committed, we can run some tests.  We also
need to know what is the name of your language in Amharic (UTF-8
encoded) and what's the best ASCII approximation of it.

Do keyboard definition files exist for Amharic?

As a fully qualified locale, we should probably use am_ET.
