Hi Michael et al

It was suggested during the confcall that we should perhaps concentrate 
on this issue on the mailing list. I think that the idea is that members 
on the projects list are prepared to expedite issues here a little more 
quickly than on the other lists.

The object of this exercise is to see if we could have the release 
notes, on the website page, released all at the same time for as many 
language groups as possible. The release is planned for the end of May 
or early days of June. We have about 10-11 days left.

Michael:  Thanks for doing this. Sure we will add credit to the people 
associated with the changes.

So far the this list is it for the upcoming release so we should try to 
get different language groups to get this page translated. It would be 
nice to have at least one interested member represented for each 
language group who is ready to translate/contribute and do the same for 
the web page.

We will need:

* get language groups to translate the wiki page of release notes.[1]
* get images of different new features or fixes done in different 
language. We should have the same protocols for image captures. Could 
someone point me to these if they have ever been discussed or could we 
have someone chime in and help out?
* get the translation of the release website page done before the 
release of the new version. We need to coordinate this with the dev 
group. I am not sure who gives the final say on when the new release if 
put on the downloads website pages. Are you the person who OK's this?

Any input on this is welcome.
