  • Todo items for the next meeting

Since last time

Polderland:

  • windows installer: check if executable winzip version will run setup.exe automatically
    • fell of the radar (forgot to copy it to TODO list last week) - will check immediately
  • check: does the Adobe hyphenator differentiate between "word boundary" (strong) hyphenation points and "word internal" (weak) ones?
    • does not appear to have it, not 100 % sure yet
  • installer for windows: should be multi-lingual for Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, English, N.Sami and L.Sami. Check which installshield version we need
    • checked, problematic: haven't found yet where to include Sami installer texts + Sami language names in installer drop-down lists (Sami locales w.r.t. language codes etc were added in XP SP2) will continue investigation
    • doable, almost completed. Will be sent today or tomorrow.
  • easter egg:
    • should not be a problem. Will send example today (from Frysian)

Divvun:

  • working on integrating the whole speller making, PLX conversion etc. in the make file
    • still working on it
  • working on updating the Lule Sámi conversion to be as good as the North Sámi
    • still working
  • tried to make version info easter egg - no success, see below
    • it should work, PLD will send an example

Possible issues

Speller lexicon version ID

We planned some sort of easter egg of the type:

nuvvid -> Divvun Speller Lexicon 13.3.2007 Made by the Divvun team: ...

But it doesn't work. Presently I have the following code:

In the lexicon:
Divvun	NI
SjurMoshagen	NI
Version1b02-200307

Phon-rules:
/$Divvun<=>nuvvi$D/         twin
/$Sjur$Moshagen<=>nuvvi$D/         twin
/$Version1b02-200307<=>nuvvi$D/	twin
  • PLD: will send an example

Next meeting

Next Tuesday (3.4.) at the usual time.

TODO:

  • PLD runnable winzip installer possible?
  • PLD definitive answer on adobe hyphenator hyphen types (strong vs. weak)
  • check: does the Adobe hyphenator differentiate between "word boundary" (strong) hyphenation points and "word internal" (weak) ones? - under investigation
  • installer for windows: should be multi-lingual for Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, English, N.Sami and L.Sami. Check which installshield version we need
    • solved, will be sent after testing
  • check: installer on Mac should be able to (PLD to check):
    • move existing proofing tools out of the way (into a zip archive?)
    • restore "original" proofing tools on deinstallation
      • yes, but some residues remain after de-installation.
      • solution probably requires admin rights - will document
  • check if Sami-codes are included in Office 2008 / Mac (when beta arrives with codes) (Polderland)
  • try to find proper compiler version for Adobe Indesign (old version will probably do) (Polderland)
  • send speller lexicon (or CVS tag) for the beta release to Polderland ( Sjur)
