[Wikikn-l (kannada wikipedia)] Transliteration Js and keymap added to Kannada Wikipedia

Good news, people. We've added Kannada in-built typing tool for Kannada
Wikipedia as well now. Thanks to Junaid's work - we've used his script to
achieve this. Thanks to Harisha M G for helping modify the mapping for
Kannada.

The transliteration is working great - I just added it and tested it quite
extensively and it is working fine. Please write to the Kannada Wikipedia
mailing list if you have any feedback or face any issues while using this.

Cheers,

[Wikikn-l (kannada wikipedia)] Kannada Wikipedia meet-up of 25th December 2010

Hi all,

It was quite overwhelming to see loads of people joining in for the Kannada
Wikipedia meet-up beyond the expected numbers!

http://www.flickr.com/photos/hpnadig/5290761488/

It was thought that less people would turn up given the difficulty getting
to the venue and more importantly the holiday season. But it turned out to
be a great day discussing Kannada Wikipedia and having some fun as well.

Most of the audience felt that everyone should do a bit more to improve
Kannada version, and the difficulty mainly was in the 'input method' for
Kannada and fonts.

There was this active set of several Wikimedians from Kannada wiktionary
(which has of late been faring quite well). Few people using Google
translator toolkit to add articles to Kannada Wikipedia were also present
from the host, inetFrame solutions. There was an interaction between
community members and this team on the translation process. Several doubts
were resolved and few issues were sorted out. It was decided that a
feedback/guidelines page would be put up on the Wiki for everyone using
Google translator toolkit or the Microsoft Bhasha tool including those that
were discussed today.

There was discussion about bringing back the weekly collaborations that were
happening once upon a time. Community members were also keen to know more
about using the Google kit to translate lengthy articles.

It was great fun discussing about translations and sharing some experiences

[Wikikn-l (kannada wikipedia)] Mysore event on Jan 15th

Okay, around couple of weeks back I had initiated an attempt to organize
Wikipedia 10th event at Mysore. There's been some excellent response and
quite a lot of activity in attempts to organize this event. However, just to
make sure that no one is left out from the opportunity of taking part (in
organizing, participating), I'm putting this email to you all to add any
Wikimedian, Wikipedian contacts you have in Mysore to the loop. Please mail
me back off-the-list.

There will be a formal announcement about the efforts later this week as
three venues have been zeroed in on (one of those have confirmed
availability and allow use of the venue on that day), however the final one
among these three need to be confirmed.

Looking forward to a nice gathering at the Knowledge capital of our state to
celebrate Wikipedia!
