It has been a long time. Lot of water has passed under the bridge. I have moved to a new team. Part of the Sun Grid team now.
On the localisation front, if you didnt know yet, Tamil is one of the first new locale that made it to OpenSolaris. This effort jumpstarted some colleagues, Raju Alluri and Kesari Mandyam to add locales for Telugu and Kannada. Very soon, we can see OpenSolaris in Indian languages.
I am running into some translation hurdles though. My home system still does not support Solaris (old network card, Compex). So, I thought I will do the translation in Linux (Ubuntu) using gtranslator. None of the Solaris .po file (untranslated) were opening. A 'msgfmt x.po' gave many syntax errors. So, it looks like I have to get my home system with Solaris, soon. (Siva- move your lazy a$$ and get a modern NIC card). Will post you on my progress later (Not so much later, I assure you).
