Hey guys, you can count with me to translate for brazilian portuguese, ok?:)
Ps.: Will be more better this discurssion in brazilian portuguese of that in english or we create an discurssion list, you don't thing? .
We just got approved for a savannah project. Those interested in
starting on anaconda documents, please go to http://savannah.nongnu.org
and create an account (new user via SSL). You can then search for
anacondadocs (or surf to
http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/anacondadocs). Send me your
usernames, and I'll add you to the group. I am going on vacation for a
few weeks, but I'll be checking mail on and off. I'll try to set
someone else up as an administrator so that they can add accounts as

I've just downloaded and installed Fedora Core 1, replacing my existing
RH9 setup and so far so good, I'm very impressed. I've always wanted to
contribute something back to the distribution I use and feel that Fedora
might be the ideal chance.
Since security is the area of computing I know best (and what earns me my
paycheque) I'd love to write some form of "Securing Fedora" guide. Would
this be something useful to the project? I've just checked out fedora-docs
from CVS and I'll start to look over those files and the documentation
I'm having trouble getting sgml to work in emacs.
I'm getting the same error as this user here:
I installed all the emacs, docbook and sgml packages I could find.
But I still get the error:
XML requires a system ID after a public ID
This is when I invoke xemacs like this:
[144 13:33 gose@winters:~/fedora-docs/documentation-guide] xemacs documentation-guide-en.xml
And run 'DTD -> Parse DTD'. Any ideas?
[root@winters gose]# rpm -qa | grep sgml
[root@winters gose]# rpm -qa | grep emac
[root@winters gose]# rpm -qa | grep xml
[root@winters gose]# rpm -qa | grep docbook
(I posted this message in fedora-devel-list(a)redhat.com, and I was
suggested to post it this list also, so here we go!)
I have recently joined Fedora's translation project, and would like to
start working on the translation to the Catalan language.
I hope I am not posting to the wrong list (should I post at
i18n(a)redhat.com?), if I do, please tell me and accept my apologies :)
I have some questions: I've got CVS access, checked out "translate"
module, and reviewed. Now, Catalan is a new language (there is no ca.po
for any application), so to start with anaconda, for instance, I created
it using msginit like this:
$ msginit --locale=ca -i anaconda.pot
Is that how you would normally do it?
Then, once the file is translated, do I have rights to commit (and thus
add a new file) into the repository, or is there someone coordinating
the translation efforts that should do it? Shall I file a RFE requesting
the addition of a new language, maybe?
If it exists a FAQ or documentation about this, let me know!
P.S.: If there are subscribers here that would like to help to translate
Fedora into catalan, we're going to coordinate from
http://www.softcatala.org/llistes/ (list "Fedora").
This PGP stuff is new to me, too
I downloaded PGP.

Does anyone know how to get evolution to use Akbar's PGP key? I cannot
seem to find a way to import it.

Well, I had a quick glance through my notes and I think I will try to start
3. What is needed to re-build anaconda (disk space, packages) (requirements)
7. Set up your build environment (tree structures needed and so on)
9. Step by step walkthrough the whole buildinstall process (since I just
went through the whole thing!)
But I will wait till we are approved at sourceforge and until Taylor had a
chance to improve the TOC.
I will also try to contact Brian to see if we could mention his
kickstart-tools that were so valuable for making my distro.
Tammy, if it's not too much trouble, could you also add the following to
the Makefile for people who need single HTML files for whatever reason:
@xmlto html-nochunks $(XMLFILE)
And, just to show my blissful ignorance, can anyone tell me how to get
my PDF's to build as US-letter size instead of A4? I am using FC1 and
simply don't know enough about xmlto or the rest of the DocBook-XML
toolset to figure this out. I've tried a number of things already and
none appear to have any effect.

That is fantastic!
I am going through my notes now and we can reconvene tomorrow.
I guess our logo will be an anaconda (duuuh!) Any ideas?
I have a feeling that we are off to a good start and I am positive about the
project. There is a good caliber of people here.

I actually just setup a page for us on SourceForge.
Please sign up for an account here:
I have submitted a project and will email this list when we are given
approval. The reason I chose Sourceforge instead of setting up a server
myself is that this will give us greater visablity and I live in
Northern CA (the power does go out here ;). Plus we get everything we
need: CVS, web site, managed hosting, etc.
