I don't think it's neccesary to import pages with full history from the
english to the german wiki,
as the content will be rewritten completely anyway.
This only makes sense when transitioning from the old english to the new
english wiki for example.
So I'd suggest to either directly start with a german version of that page,
or import it without history (74KB).

Maybe someone else will follow this suggestion.
And maybe someone else would also compile a program written for
openSUSE to a version for Ubuntu
without citing the original authors in this 'new' package.

I do not intent to
1) write a complete new article
*nor*
2) translate the work of others without naming the authors
and so violate the licence ( GNU Free Documentation License)
*nor*
3) go through the hole history and pick up the authors manually


In addition it makes much sense to see the original changes also in an
other language - for example if something seems to be wrong and you
want to try to retrace the cause of the fault.

I just wanted to point out a solution that we can use now, as the upload of
that big file does not work,
and we are not able to change that right now.
Maybe another option is to add a note that the article is a translation of the
english one with a link to:
http://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Product_highlights&action=history
so one can see the original authors.

So whoever wants to act in that way -
have a lot of fun
especially with the still buggy "Terms and Conditions"

You mean: http://dewiki.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Urheberrecht ?
What's the issue there?

Greetings
