This is the place to explore gaps in African language support on the Web and in eBooks, and to document requirements.
We aim to address the problem that local users don’t know how to tell the W3C what problems exist for support of their language on the Web, and the W3C doesn’t know how to contact people who can help when questions arise.
Note that the public-i18n-africa mailing list is used to send notification digests & meeting minutes. It is not for technical discussion.
You can participate in the task force work at various levels. In order of increasing commitment, these include Follower, Contributor, Participant, Editor, and Chair. Find your level.
To just follow the work: Rather than ‘Watch’ this repository, subscribe to the public-i18n-africa mailing list. That list is notified (no more than once a day, and in digest form), about changes to issues in this repository, but also about other W3C Working Group issues related to the African writing systems.
To contribute content: All contributors must read and agree with CONTRIBUTING.md.
To become a participant, editor, or chair: contact Richard Ishida. We welcome participation requests.
