Has to do with some american history stuff, it seems:
By 1800 a new slogan was beginning to appear across the new country,
"Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute."
After reading this,I think it should be appropriated.
We(the GNU/Linux User Group of Trichy) are working on the Tamil Translation of
the GNU Manifesto. It is almost complete. But we have a few problems...
------------------- Manifesto Begins ----------------------------------
"We need the programmers desperately. If they demand that we stop
helping our neighbors, we have to obey."
You're never so desperate that you have to obey this sort of demand.
Remember: millions for defense, but not a cent for tribute!
------------------- Manifesto Ends -------------------------------------
What is the meaning of "millions for defense, but not a cent for tribute!"? We
do not understand it to the point of being able to translate it to tamil.
Can somebody tell us the meaning of this line?

Please don't use the ones you currently have. We will soon have the
fonts with proper copyright matters embedded in the font with credits.
The font creators, Shri Hussain and Shri Chitranja Kumar are working on
webpages for the project. They will be releasing it on the web soon.
This list will be informed. Students of CUSAT should be credited for
working to make this work GPL and is so is the authors who happily
agreed when they heard about the GNU project and the GPL. They (students
of CUSAT) are also working on opentype fonts and further development of
Rachana fonts together with original authors.

I have read some interesting articles regarding top-posting and
bottom-posting. I am unaware of such matters. First of all I thank you
for linking me to such things. Some opposed top-posting but some opposed
bottom-posting. I neither have inclination to both these techniques. I
did top-posting only because of convenience. After reading some of the
articles I think that there is nothing wrong in top-posting.For your
convenience I am bottom-posting this mail. I am sorry, if I had hurt
you in this regard.
Meanwhile you have some remarks about Rachana fonts. Please make it clear.

Someone was heard as saying that such fonts can also help us save
bandwidth, newsprint and printing ink. If so, then seeing them released
under the GNU GPL is a big relief indeed!

Just attended the RMS' lecture at the EMS Memorial Lecture(Kerala
University Senate Hall,Thiruvananthapuram). The speech was informative.
It would be very useful if anyone can post the complete text(or audio
format) of the speech. I think the FSF India people can help.
The lecture was on software patents.
Rachana, a malayalam font is released in free license.
This release was by RMS, during his kochi visit. RMS did
mentioned about this in a discussion at CESS, tvm.
Did anybody now the details like where Can we get the font,
and who all are this great movement......
