Since last time


  • InDesign Windows: on hold (cf Mac)
  • Mac Office 2008: dropped (have beta for icelandic too)
  • OpenOffice: depends on Papiamento (although - might create it anyway) => Papiamento decision should be available by now - check
  • re-use Polderland knowledge: is your knowledge now (but maybe we should have told you a bit less: ) - we'll be carefull;) : ) )
  • bugs 645: no progress
  • maintenance and support: warrantee period ends in September. Do you have a suggestion for a M+S contract, or do you want us to propose one? => Divvun: The idea was to ask for a quote as part of (or parallell to) the South Sámi offer, but that might still take some time to finish


  • now hiring South Sámi linguist
    • done on my part, some formalities left
  • tested first drop of MS Office 2008 spellers, seems to be working fine (but more thorough testing needed)

Bug status


No new items.

To be solved/investigated by Divvun

Div Pld Description
621 xxx other hyphenator bugs. PB: not as much incorrect as well as weird-looking.
630 xxx Word (prefix) with hyphen is rejected - and suggested
652 xxx UPPERCASE-typos only get acronym-suggestions: VARI -> no sugg, vARI -> VÁRI as sugg; consequence of the sugg. mechanism, unresolvable
581 xxx consonant doubling => actual problem is suggestions with hyphens (split compound type); these can be blocked as suggestions, and thus be removed (they would still be recognised, though)

Under investigation by Polderland

Div Pld Description
645 xxx borgguhan-gihppagis gets the hyphen on the next line

Priority list

  1. Hyphenator for Microsoft Office 2008 / Mac
  2. Installer for Microsoft Office 2008 / Mac
  3. M+S request letter from the Divvun project
  4. InDesign proofing tools for Windows

Next meeting

Next meeting (16.9.) at 09.30 Dutch/Norwegian time.
