The following issue #60109 has been filed time ago to include de Akan (Ghana) locale in OpenOffice.org.

We have parsed the locale into LocaleGEN and post a new review.

The following errors have been corrected:

  • XML Validation and Layout
  • Include update field for CLDR in the header
  • Include C2A0 as space separator
  • Correct Microsoft code to FFFF <default>
  • Correct E+000 to E+00
  • Include IndexKey A-P Ɛ R-W Ɔ Z (without diagraphs)
  • LC_NumberingLevel
  • Localized the Currency name to Sidi

Sun donates a X4100 server

Sun donates a X4100 server

Sun X4100 Cooling

I have received a donation from SUN to support the work i am doing in localization. Thanks to Manuel Jaffrin, Mike Eberhardt and Kent Åberg to make it happen. The X4100 server is a Dual-Core AMD Opteron(TM) and can run both x86 and x86_64 OSs.

The box comes with a SATA 73 GB drive. I was initially considering to install both Solaris and Linux in the box to build OpenOffice.org but things did not turn as easy as expected. The drive is too small for having a dual boot build server but the main problem (nightmare) was related to the MPT fusion device driver for the LSI SAS 1064 chipset. This chipset is only supported in Solaris 10. When it comes to Linux, Sun provides an extra-drivers CD for two distributions RH and SuSE enterprise editions.

gsicheck available for download

gsicheck is a tool that checks the syntax of tags in OpenOffice.org GSI-Files and SDF-Files. The tool is also capable of checking inconsistencies and malicious UTF8 encoding.

gsicheck is part of the transex3 module. I have compiled gsicheck and include all the libraries required to run it here. Translation teams that want to check the integrity of the GSI/SDF files do not need get the OOo build environment running to use the tool.
