Right, Catalan users could install using Spanish or French, depending
where they live. Danish users could install using (I hope I'm not
mistaken) German, probably. But then, what's the point of doing this
huge work by the Catalan and Danish teams? If they have worked to have
everything completely up to date, I think it should be rewarded. I
believe it's preferable to not ship with something half done or completely
useless (say, ship woody with a Polish translation of the Potato release
notes). Anyway, Phil committed a solution for the CD's, which I guess is
what most of the people will end up using. Creating customized floppies
isn't as hard as doing custom CDs, so I'm personally happy with this.
