3. Documentation

User documents, specifically the README files, need to get some semi-automatic updates of the list of fixed and outstanding bugs. Should be extracted from Bugzilla.

TODO:

4. Corpus gathering

No news.

TODO:

5. Corpus infrastructure

UiT is participating in work to get a large European infrastructure project. Our work on corpus infrastructure will constitute an important cornerstone in the Tromsø work.

6. Infrastructure

Nothing new - the Divvun site needs regular restarts, but this is well known.

7. Linguistics

North Sámi

(New) place names should be outfitted with a country code as a comment:

Ávvil ANAR ; !FIN

This !FIN has been added to the base list Ilona is working with. Quick and easy!

TODO:

Lule Sámi

TODO:

8. Name lexicon infrastructure

This sub-project needs to get up and running soon. Mainly Sjur’s task.

Decisions made in Tromsø can be found in [this meeting memo.|/admin/physical_meetings/tromso-2006-08-propnoun.html]

TODO:

  1. fix bugs in lexc2xml; add comments to the log element (Saara)
  2. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  3. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: (Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  4. make terms-smX.xml <=== automatically from propernoun-sme-lex.xml (add nob as well) (the morphological section should be kept intact, in e.g. propernoun-sme-morph.txt) (Sjur, Saara)
  5. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files (Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  6. implement data synchronisation between risten.no and the cvs repo, and possibly other servers (ie the G5 as an alternative server to the public risten.no - it might be faster and better suited than the official one; also local installations could be treated the same way)
  7. start to use the xml file as source file
  8. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, Maaren, linguists)
  9. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  10. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  11. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  12. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils (linguists)

9. Spellers

New spellers released today (they accept giella- but suggest giella–).

OOo spellers

A first codebase for Hunspell conversion commited today. Roughly 1 week, maximum 2 weeks, left until Alpha version.

TODO:

Testing

Spelling Error Markup

TODO:

Automated testing

TODO:

Lexicon conversion to the PLX format

TODO:

New public beta

Delayed till the majority of the present bugs are fixed. The twolc bug is the major stopper, as well as 484 and 458.

10. Other

Corpus contracts

TODO:

Bug fixing

When fixing bugs, record the version number containing the fix in the Bugzilla bug report, such that for each bug, we know exactly when it should have been fixed, in what file(s) and what version.

55 open Divvun/Disamb bugs (24 of these 56 are speller-related bugs, 28 are general bugs), and 23 risten.no bugs

Project meeting

We’ll meet in September, 24-28, in Tromsø to work on the hardest remaining issues.

11. Next meeting, closing

The next meeting is 10.9.2007, 09:30 Norwegian time.

The meeting was closed at 10:26.
