Today, spent some time interacting on the Open Solaris I18n Discuss forums about the Telugu translation plans. Did some translations of a .po file as per the instructions at this genunix page. However, I have hit a dead end, especially while creating a fool proof build infrastructure. So more work for the weekends and upcoming nights.
Will soon start a I18n Discussion Forum for Telugu on Open Solaris site, thanks to the leads given by folks there. Interested people can check this blog early next week for links and logistics.
