We only have one submission for this month so far.

Let us know if you have any challenges or questions.

I think there's a bit of error in the instruction.

You should provide two files for each submission:

  • ONE pdf file accompanying the datasheet that documents its motivation, composition, collection process, recommended uses, and so on. See this paper for further details.

Please label your files:

username_documentation_XXX.pdf

Hi wxPython,

The datasheet and documentation are the same thing.

Upload the language dataset and then the datasheet.

Thank you for your question!
