Some weeks ago I've committed

/cvsroot/debian-flyers/general/english.tex,v  <--  english.tex
new revision: 1.46; previous revision: 1.45


/cvsroot/debian-flyers/general/nederlands.tex,v  <--  nederlands.tex
new revision: 1.28; previous revision: 1.27

.  There are no pending patches afaik.  However, for sure deutsch.tex needs and
update.  If you're not that keen on getting cvs and tex and all that working;
just download http://mdcc.cx/tmp/deutsch.tex and mail me your updated version.
I'm more than happy to commit it to CVS, and convert it to PDF for you.

I've just uploaded http://mdcc.cx/tmp/all.ps and http://mdcc.cx/tmp/flyer.ps .
and http://mdcc.cx/tmp/flyer.pdf , based upon current CVS.

Quick recipe for rebuilding:


sudo apt -V install cvs texlive-lang-german gv

cvs -d :ext:@alioth.debian.org:/cvsroot/debian-flyers co general
   cvs -d :ext:<username>@alioth.debian.org:/cvsroot/debian-flyers co general

cd general

make lang1=deutsch lang2=english flyer.ps 
xdvi flyer.dvi 
ps2pdf flyer.ps

make all.ps
gv all.ps


There are some logo's in sponsors/ , if you find somebody willing to pay for
printing costs, you can offer to put a logo on the flyer.  It needs a little
bit of TeX hacking; I'm happy to help.

Let me know if you need any more help; I can submit about an hour or two.

Thanks for your interest & happy hacking.

Enjoy CLT (and say hi from me to Sven Guckes if you happen to run into him),
