You had one change in the Englis version which was apparently
triggered by a comment of mine. I'm suggesting a slight additional
change of wording, hopefully making it a bit more idiomatic.

I've sent diffs for Swedish against Joey's CVS version 1.6 to him
under separate cover. If somebody else is reviewing Swedish, could
you please take another look whenever Joey has updated the CVS
repository version. It's basically just a merge of diffs I've posted
here before but the changes against CVS v1.6 are rather significant in
some places.

I can compile a list of things which seem to be haunting new localized
versions if there is interest (inconsistent spelling of some
programming languages, etc). However, I think the best starting point
would be to have a good change log for the English and German
versions, because a lot of the new translations seem to be based on
earlier versions of those.

I don't know what the DDP are using to track changes which need to be
applied to any downstream translations of a document, but I imagine
they must have +some+ sort of mechanism in place for this already.
