We did not get a response from you, so we deleted your project from the pending queue.

If you would still like to have your project hosted at Savannah, please register it again.

The re-registration URL found in our acknowledgment of your earlier registration will direct you to the proper location where you can re-register your project.

I am waiting for an answer from you.

If within one week I still do not get a reply, I will remove your project. You will still be able to register it again once you have the time to deal with the registration issues.

Are you still willing to host your project at Savannah? If not, please tell us - we don't bite, and it will make us gain time.

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

Please, accept our apologies for the delay you are facing.

Your project is not part of the GNU project, so we cannot accept its current type.  We want to maintain the distinction between 'GNU' and'non-GNU' projects.  If your project is approved for inclusion into Savannah, we will set it's type to 'non-GNU'.

If your project is accepted into the GNU project you may change its type.  You can do this by asking us.

Please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source code. Alternatively, you can forward the code to me by email.

We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to catch potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GNU GPL you must include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every  copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines long.  This is explained in http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.  Our review would help catch potential omissions such as these.

Note that sending code to our repositories is a release, since the code will then be publicly available through anonymous access.

Registration Details

I propose to implement a malayalam Typing Tutor under GNU General Public License. I plan to add indic language support in 'Tux Typing' using pango library.

Pango is an opensource computing library for rendering internationalized texts in high quality. pango will handle the task to add indic language support in Tux Typing and also the rendering problems associated with indic languages. Pango rendering pipelines takes a string of unicode characters and convert in to glyphs.

In the practice session a detailed introduction will be given to the user regarding the key combinations for each characters and also the character combinations for each ligatures.

Other Software Required:

pango open source computing library
