You're talking about testing the keyboard layout and fonts. What about
localization of software?

According to Pootle, except possibly for XO-Bundled (89%), the Nepali
localization is not in good shape. The rest of the modules are less
than half translated, and Etoys less than 1%.

Sayamindu, how many people do we have working on this? What
organizations are involved? Why aren't there more?

And 40 spares? Any idea what you want to do with them?

Quite right.
