Well, let's try, then....

I'm maintaining the of the Irish translations
for KDE, OpenOffice, and the GNU TP software so it's not
clear that I'll have time to do much with the Debian installer.

Nevertheless I'm willing to work on it occasionally
since it's pretty unlikely that anyone else will
step up and try.

Céad míle fáilte romhat Kevin! (Welcome!)

I hope I got that right... ;)

Great to see you here. :D

Christian is our co-ordinator, but I'm answering the bits I can. :)

I read some of the docs and grabbed the "level 1" pot file
(1459 strings).   Do I need SVN access to commit the changes
that I make?

Not immediately. It's useful for some modules, including D-I Level 1, but to start with, and with all the non-general-source-control-access files, you can send translations in using the Debian Bug-Tracking system, simply send an email to:


Subject: INTL:xx

where xx is your language code

and body:
Package: NAME
Version: NUMBER
Severity: minor
Tags: l10n, patch

The LANGUAGE translation for FILENAME

(attach file)

translated and submitted by: NAME, EMAIL (if not yours)


You usually don't know the Version for the Installer, just leave it blank and include the Level in the FILENAME, e.g.
The Vietnamese translation for the Debian-Installer Level 1 file

Some info on SVN etc. for Debian:


http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/d-i/trunk/  (WebSVN)

I hope this is useful, and again, Welcome to Debian! :))
