I have to say that Martin has the right idea, yes I personally would like to
see an Irish language medium for discussing linux realted issues, but this
probably isn't it. There is no reason a SIG cannot be established for those
of us who have a "cupla focal" <God I hate that term!> if the demand
Ni raibh ach cuigear nu seisear ag cuidiu leis an tionscnamh aistriu
Mandrake seal o shin, agus ta breis is 500 baill ag an ILUG faoin ama seo.
Is cuma ce comh "ceart" is a bhfuil se, ni choir d'aon mionlach a gcuid
tuairimi a cur i bhfeidhm ar an morlach, ach ag an ama ceanna ni choir don
morlach an mionlach a bhru faoi chos de bharr nach naontaionn a gcuid
I only had a half a dozen or so helping with the Mandrake Translation
project a while back (Thanks lads), and with over 500 members in the ILUG at
this stage that's about 1%. I don't care how "right" it is, no minority
should try to push its' opinions on the majority, BUT at the same time, the
majority should respect the beliefs of the minority.
In short, the accepted language of the ILUG is English, there have (IIRC)
been more posts to the list with Latin and German in them then with Irish.
Let's learn a lesson from "Real Life" and not 'enshrine' a potentially
devisive issue in the constitution of a group dedicated to freedom of
expression (in any Language, English / Irish / Perl / Lisp / C(++) etc).
