Thanks for your suggestions; I'll add them later.

> Great to see Debian Etch finally getting native language installer

Speaking of that remindes me to the numbers at [1].  According to them
Etch will support the languange of 57% to 61% of the world population.

Earlier I was wondering, if we should add that to the announcement,
since it's an impressive number.

But writing something like: "the installation system for Debian
GNU/Linux has now been translated to 58 languages, which covers 57% of
the world population." leafes to many questions open (and I think an press
announcement should avoid that).

Has anyone any suggestion how to phrase that, so that it's still short
but understandable?
