Hello you two!

Thanks for the big amount of work. I know how tiresome it is to
translate this oververbose German to something that makes sense in
English. That and the technical jargon make translating it quite time
intensive. So kudos for that much work!

I think that it'd be much easier to review your patches and get them
integrated quicker if you post fewer of them and at an earlier stage.
Every little step counts and is appreciated :). I usually try to keep
under 50 K per patch - which makes for quite a few small files or one
large one with some smaller ones.

I saw that you also added TODO comments about the translation. That's
not very handy, as I cannot communicate with you about it :-).
It'd be nicer to either include the comment in the patch email or ask on IRC.

I noticed a lot of trailing whitespace errors. I had the same problem
in the beginning too, just find a plugin for your editor that removes
them for you or (if you use vim) you can add
autocmd BufWritePre * :%s/\s\+$//e
to your ~/.vimrc file (see http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Remove_unwanted_spaces).

I would greatly appreciate it if you could do that for any future
work. Then I don't have to fix them when reviewing. :-).

BTW: I'm reviewing the first five patches.
