If I'm not wrong its possible to compile the .po files and then put
them (the .mo files) in some directory (doesn't remember right now)
and test it with the factory (at least the yast modules)

Hi All,

I already have very nice statistics with overall >10% translations
done without fuzzy in just two days, so, for now I want to ask you if
it's possible to run some tests and then include selection of language
so users can contribute too.

Thank you in advance!

Hi all,

BDF fonts are attached, can we use them for console?

I've added Jürgen Weigert <jw@xxxxxxx> to CC:, he maintains the
kbd package which contains the console fonts.

Hi Karl,

Thank you for fast response!

Georgian characters are included in Dejavu fonts, regarding console
bitmaps - I dont see them in last stable distro but I can provide them
- my friend has included it in ubuntu, so I will ask him to check it
and give some recommenations.

Regarding Translation - no problem, I can do it.

Well, I will start development in next week and I will provide you all
information. I cannot do it right now because currently my internet
connection is limited via proxy, next week I will have everything we

Thank you!
