3. Documentation

InDesign documentation is needed.

TODO:

  • translate InDesign documentation (Thomas, Sjur, Ilona)
  • proofread the translated/written documentation (Børre, Per-Eric, Tomi)

4. Corpus infrastructure

Nothing.

5. Infrastructure

TODO:

  • add Jabber account in iChat (all)

6. Linguistics

North Sámi

Hyphenation bugs found in Polderland code, update expected this week, should fix everything.

Ilona fixed the sme false negatives in bug 494.

Lule Sámi

Hyphenation: same as for sme.

TODO:

  • sme->smj lexicon conversion to build bilingual lexicon resources, and increase smj coverage (Trond, Thomas, Svenne). Add the words.

7. Name lexicon infrastructure

Delayed till Divvun2 (or after release of Divvun1).

Decisions made in Tromsø can be found in this meeting memo.

TODO:

  1. fix bugs in lexc2xml; add comments to the log element (Saara)
  2. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  3. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: ( Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  4. make terms-smX.xml <=== automatically from propernoun-sme-lex.xml (add nob as well) (the morphological section should be kept intact, in e.g. propernoun-sme-morph.txt) (Sjur, Saara)
  5. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files ( Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  6. implement data synchronisation between risten.no and the cvs repo, and possibly other servers (ie the G5 as an alternative server to the public risten.no - it might be faster and better suited than the official one; also local installations could be treated the same way)
  7. start to use the xml file as source file
  8. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, Maaren, linguists)
  9. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  10. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  11. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  12. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils ( linguists)

8. Proofing tools

Hunspell

Proper nouns not yet working, and they do not contain anything to clearly identify the end of the stem. This makes it harder to generate proper HUNSPELL entries.

TODO:

  • Hunspell lexicon conversion (Tomi, Børre)

Testing

Spelling Error Markup

This will wait till after the release.

TODO:

  • Set up ways of adding meta-information (source info, used in testing or not, added to lexicon or not) (Saara)
  • move Steinar's error markup in the xml files to (a copy of) the original ( Børre, Kimme)
  • add nested error markup to xml conversion (Saara)
  • test new and nested error markup (Sjur)

Automated testing

Paradigm testing not yet working as expected.

TODO:

  • improve hyphenation testing (Sjur)
  • fix paradigm testing (Sjur)

MS Office

Proofing tools do not work in Office 2003 when language is set to North Sámi (Finland/Sweden), and hyphenation doesn't work in Office 2007 under the same circumstances. This is reported to Polderland, and a fix is expected soon.

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

Open issues based on test results:

sámi-dáru - not accepted => Gen+hyph compound, is not allowed with hyphen. We can allow such compounds without too much overgeneration by adding the hyphen to the last part, ie -dáru in the PLX entry. => Bugzilla as feature request.

smj

  • 419 - fixed
  • 518 - regression - Fuoskok = pl+clitic as well as derivation = won't fix
  • 575 - fixed - no double hyphens
  • 584 - fixed
  • 589 - fixed
  • 596 - C-giella

sme

  • 425 - roman number - will not be fixed in 1.0 release
  • 518 - regression - plural same as derivation, won't fix
  • 588 - regression - r. accepted as final part
    • Tomi knows where is the problem, but because verb compilation takes much time, haven't tackled it yet
  • 592 - fixed
  • 593 - missing words in beta2, still a few
  • 595 - prefix+name wihtout hyphen (ovdaLot instead of ovda-Lot)

TODO:

  • look at test cases still not behaving properly (Thomas, Tomi)

InDesign tools

Almost finished, found a bug (reported to Polderland).

TODO:

  • improve hyphenation testing (Sjur)
  • upload (Sjur)
  • documentation (Børre, Sjur)

Hyphenators

Waiting for the last bug fixes from Polderland.

Final release

Released!

Update

  • update the list of changes/fixes (Børre)
  • update the front page (Sjur, all)
  • include latest fixes, update from Polderland (Sjur, Tomi)
