Hello everybody :)

The Mailman wiki is looking great, and we have our own  
Internationalization [1] page!

Please have a look, and while you're there, register with the wiki  
and contribute your own ideas and experience. ;)

We also have our own HowTo [2], and the Internationalization page  
from the website has been ported [3] to the wiki.

This includes the table of supported languages and Mailman Language  
Champions. We've made a separate column for additional information,  
so if you have a website or mailing-list link you'd like included,  
please add it [4].

Please check the Language Champions table, and make sure the  
information is up-to-date. If not, please edit it.

(If for some reason editing the wiki is awkward for you, you can send  
the information to me, and I will edit the page accordingly. But the  
wiki is very easy to use.)

This is a good opportunity to make sure all our information is up-to- 

I'd also like to suggest that on the Supported Languages table, we  
really only need one contact person per language. That language is  
welcome to include a link to its own page, which would list everyone  
contributing to that translation, but I don't think we really need  
more than one name per language on the table.

Our Mailman developers will probably keep at least one backup contact  
per language, but for the public table, I think we only need one name  
per language, which would make the table much easier to scan for  
information. Currently, some sections are very crowded, and its not  
as easy to run your eye through the information and quickly find what  
you want, as it would be with one name per section.

What do others think about this? Would it be OK to go ahead and  
display one contact name for each language?

If so, please edit the table yourself, for your language, or send  
that information to me. The information sent could be as simple as  
"Use Pablo for Spanish", if Pablo's details are already in the table,  
or it could be the language name, contact name and contact email  
address for someone not yet there.

I look forward to seeing your contributions in the wiki. :)
