Be ready that it is now *very likely* that we will go for working with
the Wordforge people and that it is also *very likely* that the work
we will expect should be on some part of the needed implementation
that we have to discuss with Wordforge developers.

I would really like to have you guys who were'nt in Mexico be able to
see the videos of the two BOFs and also Javier Sola improvised
presentaiton on Wordforge.

Even though this sounds too strict, I will hereby add that this is
kind of a mandatory feature. Of course, we will also need all the
needed mechanisms, including automated ones, to actually *orphan*
translations when translators are inactive on them.

You have been warned. I already told this may sound a bit early for
people wanting to jump into coding in a very geeky style (small pun,
no offense intended). You're not alone wanting to jump into code, so
be sure that things will happen....but talks and discussions HAVE to
happen. This is what makes long-term viable software.
