Work started on Release Notes for Etch

Hello translators,

This is a heads up to inform you that work has started on the Release 
Notes for Etch.

For now, the new Release Notes will be maintained in a branch of the CVS 
repository for the Debian Documentation Project (DDP). The mailing list 
where the work is coordinated is debian-doc@lists.debian.org.

See [1] for general information on how to get a checkout from the DDP CVS.
* To get an anonymous CVS checkout of the Etch Release Notes, use:
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-doc login
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-doc -z3 \
    checkout -r etch ddp/manuals.sgml/release-notes
* If you have pserver commit access, replace "anonymous" with your
  user name.
* If you have SSH commit access, use:
  $ cvs -d :ext:<user name>@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-doc -z3 \
    checkout -r etch ddp/manuals.sgml/release-notes
* To view the repository with a webbrowser:

Note the "-r etch". This makes sure that you get the correct branch.
If you don't have commit access, but still want to translate the Release 
Notes, please send your translation updates (gzipped) to the debian-doc 
list and someone there will commit for you.

We start with a copy of the Sarge Release Notes. So far we have only done 
a first rough cleanup of sections not relevant for Etch.
The real work starts now.

Please reply to this mail if you intend to translate the Release Notes 
again or if you intend to start a new translation. If a translation team 
knows that the previous translator is no longer active, a new translator 
is of course welcome to join.

It is up to you if you want to start updating now or wait until later. The 
advantage of starting early is probably that the changes will be more 
The most hectic period for the Release Notes will probably be the second 
half of October and the whole of November. It may extend into December 
(depending on how the release of Etch itself goes).

Further announcements relevant to translators will be made on both 
debian-i18n and debian-doc.
