Bengali translation till now has been done by Ankur group, and I guess
most of the Ankur members from India feels that it makes sense to have
bn_IN. My personal view is not to take this path, but I respect their
wish and agree to the new bn_IN team for the Indian Bengali translation
with the details Sayamindu has provided.
I guess there is no point having a bn_BD team for Bangladeshi Bengali, and
the current bn team can carry on. Keeping that in mind I would like to
hand over the bn team coordinator postion to Jamil Ahmed
<itsjamil gmail com>. All our * bengalinux org are forwarded aliases, so I
guess itsjamil gmail com should be used for security reasons.
I would also like to thank you for all your help through out the time I
was involved with the project.
Thanks Taneem for your reply. I would also like to thank you very much
for your past involvement.
It seems you were not entirely convinced that there was a real need
for a seperate bn_IN. Could you please enlighten us why?
In a similar manner, could you Sayamindu please enlighten us why you
are convinced there is a need for a seperate bn_IN translation? We
usually require rather solid motivations why translation efforts for a
language should be split, so could you please explain and summarize
the significant differences in written Bengali and/or terminology that
you think warrants the split efforts.
