Yes, you're right.  I want to keep the existing ones up until about a week 
after the Urdd Eisteddfod, though, so that if people go to look at the site 
they will get good vibes about our being 60% there.  After that, I think all 
the 100% files could come down, and new ones go up (eg Nautilus?).

It does, but since I am still finding my way around CVS, it doesn't reflect 
where we are.  When it looks as nice as the Gnome one, I'll give the address 
:-)  jr (whoever he/she is) has done a good bit of work over the last week in 
trying to finish the remaining non-100% KDE files.


llyfnu ffontiau?


The problem with "cofrif" is that it can only refer to a numerical mnemonic, 
which very few are.  The Academy dictionary gives "cofair", which is probably 
more widely useable.

mnemonic key: cof-fysell, cof-allwedd?
accelerator: cyflymydd

On related matters, I have done an update of KGyfieithu so that there is more 
(and better) background material.  One important new page gives a list of 
Welsh software, and there are more references to Mozilla, Mandrake, Abiword 

Omnivore now contains over 32,000 strings.  At the AFFS conference (see below) 
the possibility of searching this to find identical strings to be put into 
the suggestion field of new tables (files) was raised - ie a sort of fuzzy 
matching - which was why I was interested in what Alan had done.  I remain to 
be convinced about this - in KDE you will get things like Directory:, 
Directory, Directory %1, Name=Directory, and so on, and having to go into 
each of these to correct one character is hardly quicker than typing them in 
from scratch.  But if anyone thinks it would be worth experimenting with 
this, let me know.

I gave a presentation at the first conference of the Assoc for Free Software 
in Birmingham last weekend.  The presentation is available for download from 
the site, and might be useful as a starting-point if anyone else is talking 
about this subject.  Any corrections would be welcome.

I also got a bit more info about remastering Knoppix, so with luck I will 
start doing something on that shortly.

I will be at the Urdd next week - so far nothing on stall space, but maybe 
I'll nobble people on the field.

Lastly, I owe Chris and Dafydd an apology - the files will shortly be on their 
way, but site updates, conference, and a move/rationalisation of my main PC 
to SuSE 8.2 (I can use my TV card again for the first time since 7.1!!) fot 
in the way.  Sorry!

Best wishes
