Reading old mails...

jdd, I like your idea about polishing the distribution once the product
is released. As Christoph and others said, we now can offer those
updates using the openSUSE Build Service. If not already done, I
propose to start a "translation" Project and to add some yast2-trans
packages for testing. Is "translation" ("Translation"?) a good name?
What about "L10N"? "Localization"?

The packages will require some adjustments to make them build smoothly
outside of our internal SVN system. More precisely, building works, but
for best results preparation steps are required which are usually done
within the SVN. This part we will move to the
servers some time soon. For preliminary information, see

All this could be better discussed on the opensuse-translation ML, to
where I'll forward the translation aspect of this thread. Please
subscribe to the opensuse-translation ML!

Yes, the same could be done for documentation, but do not underestimate
the work involved...
