why need reference from unrelated project…

I was following OpenOffice Mailing list (l10n-dev)
due to various good and bad reasons. Various
people joins project, they give reference that
he/she want to start this language or want
to join language, they simple introduce themselves and
help by joining team.
But from last few months, Various Indic people started
join project and provide very big big reference like
I am doing gnome , am doing firefox, am doing this ….
why? if you want to join a project, why need to refer
other project and why do you think that you should be
there if in other projects?
Inside of working with project team, which already working,
the mail is something like to “I want to do that, please will
you quit or want a kick?”. (not all but few mails are like that
only, not want to refer anyboday)
This may not a big issue yet, but will they able to maintain
later with this big number of projects? It seems crazy,
how will you work as leader if you have not able with
as team member…
let us wait and watch …


First Gnome GIT Commit IN…

gnome moved to GIT ahead of KDE:-)
it was confusion how to commit as a Translator as Damned lies are changed and
everybody can make account on it and submit translation there. But how
to commit.
I have did small search and send first updated file via GIT-svn.
alam@linux-1f05:~/ git clone git://git-mirror.gnome.org/git/gnome-desktop
alam@linux-1f05:~/ git svn init -s svn+ssh://@svn.gnome.org/svn/gnome-desktop –prefix=origin/svn/
alam@linux-1f05:~/git svn rebase
alam@linux-1f05:~/l10n/gnome/GIT/gnome-desktop/po> git commit -a -m “2nd attempt to commit translation for pa.po”

No changes between current HEAD and refs/remotes/origin/svn/trunk
Resetting to the latest refs/remotes/origin/svn/trunk
it is reflected and Damned lies. It was 2nd try and commit…

few things:
1) Download size is quite big (gnome-panel-~40MB) (-)
2) number of commands increase (5 instead of 2) (-)

Linux Phone Manager and My Phone

I used windows for my Phone to take backup and
update contacts. (This will be one of two
reasons to use, other is Phone Software Update).

Today I found a application on linux. It was quite cool.
Command Line based “GAMMU“.
it worked better than my expections, Even
my Nokia 5800 is not working other than “Info”
mode, but N82 is fine.

Gammu has a Phone Database.
I put my entry here and
filled a bug here

Starting response is good and hope to fix in coming version.

Yes, it has GUI (“Wammu“),
Contact Editor and Other Screenshot

It has Windows GUI also (not used yet).

Hope it will fix soon and able to work with Nokia 5800.
