I'm pleased to meet you and glad you would like to help out.

Hello,
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Library links to PO files under
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Localization/Library

Can we put these files in Pootle and move away from using the wiki for
localization?

Another question:
how do I start the library activity? It says that it's part of Browse
right now. (What I'm tryin gto do is to realize how it works and how I
can lozalize to my language and contribute the work to the project).

Thanks,
Alexander.

Unfortunately, we do not have any content related stuff in Pootle
right now (except for the Packaging strings).
Please let me know what I can do to make push for content translation
easier for you guys - I would be more than happy to help here :-).

Cheers,

Super. I assigned #4530 to you, to start :-) I'll get you po files
for the new bundled collections when their po files are made. SJ

[OLPC library] [Olpc-open] Suggestion for Terms of Use for c

Postby Carol Lerche » Sat Jan 19, 2008 10:05 pm

Seth, sorry for sending this once to you and then to the list. On reflection I felt it should go to the list as well.

Truly the wiki is NOT the best way to organize content such as the activities page.

Yes, the countries will be the arbiters of taste as to what is shipped on each of their xo's but what about the next step?

Here are examples of completely different way to organize this type of content (not very beautiful but quite a lot more functional than just a list):

http://www.cmsmatrix.org/matrix/cms-matrix?func=search

or

http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/search

I think we need a search by age/grade level, subject matter, localization, countries using, minimum build requirement, maturity/bugginess, tag (where an app could have multiple tags that were optional and possibly pejorative!)

The current activity page is pretty hard to use -- in the computer science/database world I think we could term it a "heap".

Regards,

Carol

We need a system to categorize our data like in your links Carol, and I agree that the current state of the wiki is pretty bad. But if you look at projects like Wiki-Commons, or free-reading, a wiki *can* be a lot better organized. We just don't have enough dedicated and informed people to fix the wiki. Information doesn't spread well yet.

There are perfectly fine and useable ways to do this using the current MediaWiki software, it may just need a few extentions.

Agreed. If someone could figure out how wikipedia does http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_software#General_Information , that sort of thing would work well on the activities page.

The problem with the page you reference is that it is static. If I go to look for a selection of a large collection, I can't ask that only a pertinent subset be shown. One possibility is that the entire activity set be left in the wiki and the dev site be used to host a more dynamic, database backed implementation, which no doubt Trak is another instance of.

Looks like just a special kind of wiki class - from that page:

class="wikitable sortable"

So - any wikihackers out there? I can generate a first pass of content (for the Activities page - it's something I've been thinking about and watching the Doom discussion on...) in an Excel spreadsheet, but I doubt I can put it into a carefully formatted wiki page without making a bunch of embarassingly large errors. ;)

There is probably a further layer involved in presenting activities to potential government buyers of OLPC, but this would be a good start.
