Hello Vangelis,

Thanks for your mail.

There is definitely room for a more active Greek l10n
team. Historically, the effort has been made by very few people, such
as Konstantinos Margaritis (markos@debian.org), George Papamichelakis,

As of now, the effort is pretty much stalled, except occasional
updates by Emmanuel Galatoulas (galaxico) for Debian
Installer. Emmanuel succeeds in keeping up with D-I and related
translations but, unless I'm missing something, that's nearly all.

I think the good place could be gathering people in the existing
debian-l10n-greek@lists.debian.org. The, things are more or less up to
you folks. We don't really "nominate" "leaders" : they take the lead
themselves by doing the work, coordinating it, spreading out the work
in local groups, etc.

I suggest you to do this, try spotting what taks could be started (or
completed) or try to coordinate with people about reviving the Greek
Localization effort.

That would be a very good start.

(this mail is CC'ed to debian-l10n-greek. Hopefully, someone is still
listening there..:-))
