Excellent work.

Translating is a really good start to begin. Luckily there are a couple of 
translation services out there to, making a rough translation from English 
to French. Then you can concentrate more on sentence construction etc. 

It's three things which I see could be improved: 

1. The web site desperately needs a French translation. 

2. The release manual is not completely translated to French
     I would appreciate if some one could provide a guide where to start  

3. Making articles about user stories. 
    There is good user stories in schools from using applications 
    when teaching different topics or about Skolelinux in general. 
    No one have written good stories on that the last 2-3 years. 
    We could really need that, since I guess it's great interests 
    for it. 

I think starting with 1 and 2 is more than enough?

That's the risk that was taken 3-4 years ago, not getting all the wiki's 
"centralised". Having on in Germany, an other for France etc.  

Then you get this up-keep issues, where some groups are really active as 
in Germany. Others fades away when enthusiasts get other things to be 
enthusiastic about. 

That said, Skolelinux Developer Wiki's seems to be English only. So I 
don't have an update here. I hope anyone else is more updated than I am 
... Could someone help with an update?
