Hi, I found a couple of other changes that you might want to make. The ones where there's anything to say are: * I think that the rewording I came up with for the Mini-DebConf is simpler and more idiomatic. I'm not sure whether the "that is" should stay or go - a matter of taste, I think. * In English, we say stuff like "People stand on their feet". If I remember correctly, it's the opposite in German? * Personal irritation: You're giving instructions on how people who would like further information can get it. I can't see why we should say "please" there! :-) Otherwise, looks good to me. diff -u and wdiff output based on the patch that Justin sent already attached. Rupert
