2. Reviewing the task list from the last meeting

Børre

  • Add crontab specification for the cvs update/export script Tomi made
    • We don't have write access to files in the divvun-no file area, so we will have to wait for Thor-Øivind.
  • Correct the war file/jspwiki issue
    • Done
  • reopen the jspwiki + UTF-8 issue
    • Nothing done
  • Continue http: //giellatekno.uit.no conversion to forrest ...
    • Most of the old site is ported to forrest, links to xerox are not there.
  • Contact Svenska bibelsällskapet
    • Nothing done
  • Add issue to forrest issue tracker about utf-8 ihtml documents.
    • Check for existing bug reports, it might already be in there
    • Nothing done
  • Continue forrest i18n research
    • Sometimes abides the =locale=se/smj/fi in the url (the document gets correctly selected). The menus and tabs are translated to the language that the browser asks for.
  • add RSS newsfeed support (done by Sjur, but requires new war file)
    • Done on the local copy, but divvun.no crashes everytime the war file is renewed, has to wait for Thor-Øivind to resolve that issue, too.
  • discuss with Anders Kintel about whether we could get the Sámi-Norwegian dictionary ahead of acceptance
    • Nothing done
  • add the Oslo contract to cvs, and begin writing a contract draft
    • Nothing done

Sjur

  • risten.no bugs and fixes
    • continued - main bug worked on was concurrent editing (see bug # 108)
  • complete the action summary after our half-year evaluation
    • Not done.

    • postponed till the Helsinki meeting
  • follow up on:
    • voice group-chat not working to Sámediggi
    • Maaren has problems with SubEthaEdit (can't connect)
      • both done: spoke to Kristian Solheim (IT) about opening ports to Maaren's (and Børre's) computers - he was going to work it out with the firewall maintenance guy (he is external to Sámediggi). This should also fix another problem in the same category: Apple Remote Desktop isn't working across the Sámediggi firewall (hasn't been a big problem in the past, but might be now as Maaren is sitting more alone). Kristian was going to return to me, but nothing has been heard. I have sent an e-mail reminder.
  • add i18n bug to Forrest issue tracker
  • add i18n menu as feature request to Forrest issue tracker
  • also added a couple of other bugs/feature requests to the Forrest issue tracker:

  • To the board:
    • write proposal for permanent maintenance organisation

  • Follow up on CVS mailing with IT/UiT

    • Still to be done:
      • check that forwarding is working for all (task transferred to Børre or Tomi, you decide: -)
      • add Maaren and Thomas to the samicvs mailing list when they return, as well as instruct them on how to filter their e-mail, so to not fill up their inboxes with cvs mail.

3. Documentation - divvun.no

Giellatekno has been ported to forrest, we'll have to look at external links. The menu structure for the technical documentation has been changed. Trond has written some documentation, but there are still holes to be filled.

4. Corpus gathering

Børre will work on a draft contract, based on the Finnish contracts.

5. Corpus infrastructure

Some changes to conversion script. The catalogue infrastructure must be reworked, as discussed in the last meeting: In the gt/catalogue, we do not need year catalogues, and not catalogues named after the collector, but rather (consistently named) catalogues after text publisher and/or type.

6. Speller infrastructure

Tomi has started reading himself up on the issue. Making an alpha version for the Helsinki fst meeting has high priority, this work should be continued, by Tomi, to a certain extent in cooperation with Børre.

aSpell
