Ah, I don't know much about it, but I've heard that translators want to
publish it under GPL, but official translation project want them to
get written permission from their employer before they work in order 
to prevent future claims from their employer about thier works.
Someone says it's necessary for everyone to translate it, but others
says it's necessary for only professional translators.  I don't know
which is right.   Anyhow, we think these translation are distributed under
