I was running an introductory Linux and free-software course for a group of teachers (which was organized by the tireless Yael Talmor) and we were looking for a final project we can give them. However, most were non-technical users.
So we decided to let them translate TCExam to Hebrew:
- They only need short explanation and can use gedit for that.
- They are bound to use Linux for that (it's UTF-8 encoded and doing conversion to windows would be more difficult for them than simply use the desktops we installed during the course).
- They may have direct benefit for their school (TCExam server).
- Either way, it would help other school projects in Israel.
It took them longer than I was hoping for, but they collectively did some 3/4 of the job. In the last days I finished the rest (most of it, ~10 big strings + cleanups are needed), sent it upstream and packaged the latest and greatest version.
- It's still waiting for review (hint, hint...)
- There are some minor problems (e.g: the front page of the admin interface have some formating problems I didn't have time to debug yet).
- However, it's usable.
- Grab the RPMs for F10: tcexam, tcexam-selinux, tcexam-mysql, tcexam-postgresql
- Packagers for other distros (Debian?) you may want to look at the spec file.
