I like that idea but I think this requires a lot of work, I'm willing to
translate into Dutch if I can find a few other people to help me (I
think that will be no problem)...

SEUL will be mentioned by computer mags, adn in all Internet newsgroups,
so in the beginning we won't need a marketing manager (or whatever)...

This is a very big problem, many man pages are available but they are
all written for and by people who know a lot about UNIX/Linux... Perhaps
this part will be the bigest of our task...

In my opinion this is the same as writing a good helpfile (I don't like
to say this but I think we will need a sort of help-interface which
looks like the Windows helpfiles).

Have a nice weekend!
