I agree. Indeed that was the purpose of my message: to visibilize the
general problem through the particular Galician case. References to
Jacobo were done simply because... he is the only one in the galician
team! :)

I think so. I may offer my help.

Yep, I can understand that, even when clearly that's not the best
translation situation IMHO.

I support your encouragment in exactly the same terms. Added to that
-and as I did before in Badajoz last year- I'd like to offer all the 
resources I could provide from the Galician Government's FLOSS Center 
in order to support Debian l10n community, specially where that means 
strengthening galician Debian l10n community and maintaining an
updated and accurate Debian galician translation. Just an example we
could promote an event to discuss all this, inviting l10n Debian
experts, in a similar collaborative way as the last event we organized,
along with the galician localization community:


Sharing our hardware platform, which is settled at the Galician
Supercomputing Center (-still- Debian + Xen) could be another
possibility; I don't know, it's just a matter of identifying common
needings in order to find common ways to solve them. And nobody can
identify their own needings better than the Debian l10n community

Whatever. Recognizing the existance of the problem is the first
neccesary step in order to solve it. Step done, solution is in
progress. Good! :)
