Thank you to members of the oversight board! translating Sugar into Yoruba for 
those of us working in technology in Education in Nigeria should be a 
delightful thing and help us to push for many intervention agencies in Nigeria 
to contribute to IAEP to translate to other indigenous languages. I also agreed 
that other non-Nigerian languages can also be considered, but you can start 
with Yoruba as already proposed.

I hope this proposal come out successful.

 At today's Sugar Labs oversight board
 meeting [1], we discussed the 
 motion submitted by Chris Leonard to fund a program for
 translation of 
 Sugar into Yoruba, one of the three main languages spoken in
 Nigeria. I 
 second the motion and bring it to you in an email vote.
 Members of the oversight board, please reply to this email
 for a vote on the following motion.

 I don't see any evidence how Yoruba localization could
 increase the size 
 of the Sugar community. I think we mix here two things:
 - a localization project without any clear need on the
 - a legitimate wish to thank an active and loyal contributor
 I can't be agree with the first one (including within the
 Trip Advisor 
 deal): it's time and money for nothing.
 I'm agree with the second one but may be we could imagine
 other ways to 
 do that, i.e. ask Samson to work on more useful tasks. For
 example help 
 on initiative like the Tony one to invent an auto
 localization process.
 Best regards from France.
 +1 para Yoruba i18n motion
 Sugiero que para futuras propuestas se especifique el
 impacto que tendrá 
 en la comunidad. Es decir, cuáles y cuántos serán los
 beneficiarios de 
 la traducción, y si esto ampliará significativamente el
 alcance de Sugar.

 +1 to the motion.
 Following Lionel's point, I suggest we create a list of
 languages and 
 decide which ones are a priority (based on the potential
 impact) and 
 look for people to do the job.
 Today at 7:38PM (ET) would be the deadline for the i18n
 So the result on this motion is five in favor, one opposed
 and one 
 IAEP -- It's An Education Project (not a laptop project!)
