     73=== Prepare data model relationship entity diagram for each module in Sahana Eden ===
     74Can use MySQL workbench to reverse-engineer the Eden database into an ERR diagram, then tidy up to show the actually important information for developers (e.g. hide meta-fields, auth references and similar, annotate the foreign keys for links, move objects so they don't overlap too much), for an example see http://pub.nursix.org/eden/err_model.png.

     76=== Write blueprint to add transliteration to text entry controls ===
     77Proposed by: [http://lirneasia.net/profiles/nuwan-waidyanatha | Nuwan][[BR]]
     78'''Specific    : ''' For local language text entry one can use a native language keyboard with native unicode character set or use transliteration to allow entering the native word phonetically. for example with [http://www.google.com/ime/transliteration/ | Google Transliteration Beta] or other plug-in like [ http://www.ucsc.cmb.ac.lk/ltrl/services/feconverter/t1.html | USCS's Real-Time Unicode Converter] [[BR]]
     79'''Measurable  : ''' Users in Sri Lanka, for example, prefer Sinhala or Tamil languages. Making the option for them to turn on transliteration in Sahana to enter critical information in the local language is an important usability aspect. [[BR]]
     80'''Attainable  : ''' [[BR]]
     81Step 1 :: research the available Python/web2py transliteration engines [[BR]]
     82Step 2 :: trial/experiment with each one to determine the best [[BR]]
     83Step 3 :: develop a set of recommendations for embedding a generic transliteration engine in Eden [[BR]]
     84Step 4 :: discuss the recommendations with Sahana community [[BR]]
     85Step 5 :: document the specifications for developing the agreed on transliteration functionality [[BR]]
     86'''Relevant    : ''' In community-based disaster management literacy skills including English is poor. Important to develop flexible usable software for inclusiveness [[BR]]
     87'''Time-bound  : ''' No more than a few days to research the Internet. Another several days to discuss and finalize on the design specifications.
     88'''Evaluate    : ''' The recommended design would be discussed by the community to evaluate its workability. [[BR]]
     89'''Reevaluate  : ''' Validate the final specifications document. [[BR]]

     93* [http://demo.eden.sahanafoundation.org/ The Sahana Eden Demo Site]
     94* Existing UserGuidelines
     95* User Guidelines which have been written for specific deployments of Sahana Eden:
