No matter what the final result will be we expect everybody's participation in the voting and in the development, testing and documentation.

It seems that ther is an open project similar to trados. It is called Apertium:

No Greek support though, but since it is a modular architecture you can add any language you wish if you spend enough time :)

I have some bad news regarding our current first project. It seems that the good guys at ebox already created an iso based on ubuntu server. I am not sure if all the functionality we want is included so I will review it one of these days and see how it goes. If they have already accomplished our task we will have to do the voting again.

Ok I had the chance to play with ebox and it is impressive. Fortunately for us not all functionality is included and there is a lot of extra functionality we do not need.

So we are going to register a project in launchpad that is going to a gateway/firewall/proxy/content filter solution with the following functionality:

1) Firewall (included in ebox)
2) Blocking of outgoing traffic (included in ebox)
3) Proxy/Content Filtering with Anti-Virus support (included in ebox)
4) SMTP proxy with Anti-SPAM/Anti-Virus support (not included in ebox)
5) POP3 proxy with Anti-SPAM/Anti-Virus support (not included in ebox)
6) FTP Proxy with Anti-Virus support (not included in ebox)
7) Management of updates though WebGUI (Not sure if this is included but couldn't find one)
8) Having the option to create virtual interfaces in case only one physical interface is available in the system.

The whole project would be packages having as its base Ubuntu-Server. But since Ubuntu-Server works only on PAE capable CPU (a bad decision IMHO) we will also offer alternate kernel during the installation so that you can install the system on legacy machines

The ebox functionality to be excluded is the Mail module, LDAP, Printers and Filesharing which are un-necessary for the purpose of a gateway.

The resulting modules will be contributed back to ebox should they decide to use them.
