Hi All,

We are doing a OLPC Sinhala localization work shop at University of Colombo
School of Computing. We are planning to localize all the strings with the
help of Ministry of education and University students. We have to give
Sinhala localization rights to all the groups support for this effort.
Therefore please grant me  admin rights for Sinhala language in the pootle.

Ok - assuming that you guys decide to go with 8.2.1 (which is OLPC's
latest release), I have given you rights for the relevant projects.
Please try to complete glucose82 fructose82 and honey before moving on
to the other projects.
When you want to test your work, let me know and I'll guide you guys
through the langpack generation process.

I have given kaleel admin access. Apart from that, I gave
raveendra1972 translator access. However, I did not see deep, Nimalan
and kaan73 (though there was a khan73) in the list. You sure you added
Tamil to your language list ? Once you have done so, you can also ask
kaleel to give you access, since he has admin access now.
