Hindi Dictionary for stardict.

SRPM: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/srpm/stardict-dic-hi-3.0.1-1.fc10.src.rpm
SPEC: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/spec/stardict-dic-hi.spec

Original work is by Sriram Chaudhry. He has converted original shabdanjali dictionary to what it is at http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/misc/shabdanjali-fedora.tar.gz

I had been in touch with him, and he will be requesting to keep this tarball at http://ltrc.iiit.net/showfile.php?filename=downloads/shabdanjali-stardict/index.html But that would be a long process. To cut short I would host his work to start this review process quickly and will update later on in case he gets hosting on iiit site.

Will check with possibilities to resolve authentic source issue and update shortly.
Comment 2 Rakesh Pandit 2009-01-08 14:07:52 EST
I had a detailed conversation with author and he an emplyee at an Institute which has a very long and tiring process of updating the site hosting the source file. The link to that page is:


The source there contains a binary rpm which I have removed using a shell script and re-compressed the resulting stuff and included into package. The normal process of removing it will be too long, so this workaround.

SPEC: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/spec/stardict-dic-hi.spec
SRPM: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/srpm/stardict-dic-hi-3.0.1-2.fc10.src.rpm
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-01-30 03:40:56 EST

Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-01-30 04:53:46 EST
+ package builds in mock.
 Koji build => http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1093215
