Hi, Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña, Simon Paillard, me and others have done quite some work on the Debian GNU/Linux FAQ since its latest upload in Jan 2007 (in the doc-debian package). This FAQ is published on all Debian mirrors (e.g. at ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/FAQ/), on the Debian website at http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-faq/ (and at http://www.debian.org/doc/user-manuals#faq) and in the doc-debian, doc-debian-fr, doc-debian-uk and doc-debian-es packages. The English master text has seen quite some changes. It'd be cool if the various translations (de, es, fr, it, pl, pt_BR, ru, uk, zh_CN) could get brought back in sync, so that our users have a high quality faq when we ship lenny. For your convenience, I've created a diff of the sources between Jan 2007 and now; it's at http://mdcc.cx/tmp/debian-faq.diff-r4130.patch . You can fetch the current sources by running svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/ddp/manuals/trunk/faq (They're no longer maintained using CVS, but using Subversion (thanks to Raphael Hertzog).) If you haven't got direct commit acccess, you can sent translation patches by mail, submit them using the BTS or ask a committer to submit it directly. See http://alioth.debian.org/projects/ddp/ for the Alioth project where the FAQ is currently being maintained. If you find any errors in the original English text, of course please report them. Thanks for your work! Bye, Joost PS & FYI: Currently, work is being done in splitting the FAQ off the doc-debian package, and shipping it in a new standalone debian-faq package. This won't matter directly for the need for translation updates, though.
