I have no doubt about the fact that it's easy to download an SRPM etc. but
it's even easier (read: faster) to mail the texts.
Maybe a translation group is the answer?:
Fictive situation: Five people are all members of the list
"indy-translation". Person A is the list boss (or manager if you like), B is
from Norway, C is from Sweden and D is from Denmark. Person E is person (or

Note: I can't get WinZip (yes, I'm sitting on a Windows machine + OE) to
unzip the gz file. Anybody want to ship me a clean tar-ball?

Shouldn't be necessary if the form text is made more clear?

It is actually possible to make real apps from shell scripts. cognition
(David Webster for those who didn't know) should have a clear idea about the
project I'm talking about... :)

Unfortunately I don't wish to learn Perl, nor Python (but you are probably
