Hi all,
I'm sending this to the delph-in developers list as the jacy list seems 
to be out of service (I apologize for the recipients overhead this may 

I converted the Jacy open source HPSG grammar of Japanese, originally 
developed by Melanie Siegel at DFKI and so far hosted on a closed CVS 
server at DFKI, to subversion and moved it to the opendfki trac system 
at http://jacy.opendfki.de .


svn checkout https://jacy.opendfki.de/repos

to get the source tree (append /trunk for only the current stable version).

As I used a vanilla cvs2svn (http://cvs2svn.tigris.org)  for conversion, 
the usual svn conventions apply, i.e. trunc/ contains the current 
version, branches/ is for experimental branches, tags/ for tagged stable 

Subversion documentation can e.g. be found at 
http://svnbook.red-bean.com, trac documentation is accessible from the 
bottom of http://jacy.opendfki.de .

I hereby nominate Francis to be the main project admin :-), Bernd and I 
have admin rights as well, others may get on request.

To avoid spam, only registered users may contribute code and initiate 
tickets, modify timeline or roadmap etc.
You may register at a web address I'm only circumscribing here. Use 
https as protocol in the URL, followed by the above mentioned domain for 
jacy, but replace jacy by config. There, click on the "Account 
registration for others" menu item (assuming you are from outside DFKI).

Francis, oe and Eric Nichols are already registered and can use their 
existing pws from the PET trac; others please register yourselves, e.g. 
Emily, Melanie,...

I copied and updated the Jacy introduction page from the delph-in wiki 
to the trac wiki, but the "Using the Grammar" section may still be out 
of date. Could the main developers please have a look at it (and maybe 
remove redundant parts from either the delph-in or the opendfki wiki).

I briefly checked lex-types.tdl to see whether Japanese characters 
survived conversion, but please do check other files as well.

May the Jacy development continue.
