வேறு வழி பார்க்கலாம் செல்வம். இருக்கிறது. கூடுமானவரை இவற்றைத்
தவிர்த்து ஆனால் வேண்டும் போது பயன்படுத்திக் கொள்ளராம்.

In fedora docs I found a tool, where people edit documents together..

not sure what.. yes I got it..

Its Gobby :-)

Any one using Gobby here?


Can this be used for this purpose..

We are planning to have a standard dictionary.. volunteers each one
can take care of one letter..

In few months time we can arrive at 1,00,000 words

There is already some work by Srinivasan in Ruby for splittings words,
which can come handy later..
