Hello everyone. I am interested in the project - "Convert Coptic Scriptorium to Python" for GSoC 2017. Can someone please help me get started with how to proceed? Thanks in advance.

It is a hard language. To do this for GSoC, you will need at least 1 or 2 years experience studying it
However if you really believe that you can rewrite it without knowledge of the language, I would be interested in seeing a small example of the rewrite.

Hey Kyle, I emailed you a few days back about Sanskrit. I can see that the alphabet list and other things have been constructed for it. What else can I do to help? I was also trying to help through GSoC if possible and have sent other Indian languages I know

@kylepjohnson Okay. Thanks for the update. I'll look into it and see if I can come up with an example of the rewrite.

@yashu-seth Give it a try. Start with a very small example and do it very well
