Dear FDP members:

Firstly, thanks for this great opportunity to be a part of this community. I have been a Redhat linux user since 2002. I write this email now to quickly introduce myself and provide some background information.

My full legal name is Gayathri Swaminathan. I originally hail from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, but currently live in the US at Norman, Oklahoma. I hold a MS in CS and have worked in the IT industry around six years ( as a systems/network administrator, programmer )

At Norman, I work for the University of Oklahoma as a System Analyst at the Information technology deparment, College of Continuing Education. Professionally use Redhat ( as most of our services are deployed in this platform), but personally use Fedora to stay abreast with the bleeding edge features/ functions. This also gives me the opportunity to test feature sets, before the mass deployment in production. My programming tasks include coding in Perl, Python, Bash scripting and using Postgresql, Mysql.

My goal is to share my gotchas while installing latest features/ packages to the rest of the community and particularly help with the translation to Tamil ( my mother tongue). Since Tamil Nadu state government went open source recently, I feel there is a pressing need for documentation, community support to improve the average user experience. I am also willing to contribute in terms of systems adminstration and programming tasks.

While I wrote fairly a lot during my Masters, I would appreciate a secondary review to my writing :)

Vanakkam. Would you be interested in L10N work? We have a full time translator Felix (CC'ed) in my office but I would be interested in having a stronger L10N community involved. If not that, documentations and more streamlined tools would also help.
