    Yes, nice you did that!

    Christoph Amothor of the dictionary,,
    was so kind in previous emails that later in the evening I thought: 'He
    will probably learn from this unicoders as well, shall I give him a copy
    of the conversation, after asking if there would be any objections doing

    So if one of you can volunteer, they would be very happy. My experience
    is that with less developed countries and IDN, they are very happy when
    you contact them...had similar experience with Bangladesh. But contact
    broke down because their backbone is so weak that sending a fax is a
    challenge. MP of Bangladesh want internet and backbone, rest of country
    want better houses, health etc. I think these are less good priorities ;)
