Sarge Release Notes - Second call for translations

The first call for translations was sent 3 days ago to debian-i18n. This 
second mail is mainly intended to reach translators for languages that 
have not yet responded and to provide an update for others.

If you did not read the first call for translations [1], please do so now.

The latest Release update [2] sets the deadline for the Release Notes, 
both the original and translations, on *May 27*; that is one week from 
now. This will be very tough as there are still some important 
improvements that can be made.
We will try to have the English version ready by the end of next weekend, 
to allow as much time as possible to finalize translations, BUT small 
changes may happen after that, especially if it looks like the release 
will be postponed.
If you would like to have a translation ready on the date Sarge is 
released, you should start _now_.

Translations that are ready before the deadline _may_ be included on the 
Sarge installation CDs if space is available. No guarantees, and 
preference will be given to major languages.
All translations, if fully translated and up-to-date, will be published on 
the Debian website [3], even if the translation is completed after the 

Your translation will be added to the website as soon as you submit an 
up-to-date translation. However, it may be removed again on the deadline 
if you fail to keep up with changes made in the English text over the 
There is no need to commit or send an update for every change that is 
made, but you should check for changes regularly.

Please try to get others to proofread your translation.
If you spot typos or have any comments on the English texts, please mail 
them to the debian-doc mail list.

Further updates will be sent _only_ to the debian-i18n mail list (with CC 
to debian-doc and debian-release), so please subscribe to that list (low 
volume) or check the archives [4].

Good luck,
Frans Pop
