Re: DPN 2014/04 frozen. Please review and translate.

Dear list members, dear Cédric,

I have looked at the original text, which is well-redacted indeed, and found
only one thing to comment on: use of American English vs. Standard English: i.e.
organise (vs. organize)
I have read somewhere within the Debian website that Standard i.e. British
English is being preferred while redacting Debian-related texts. Sorry, that I
cannot remember the exact location of this advice. Being Debian a project
started in the U.S I'd perfectly understand the A.E. usage, but I feel obliged
to comment on this issue.
So, I'd prefer to see organize/organizing/organization instead of their
corresponding A.E. forms.
By the way, I forgot to mention in my previous message that I'd be glad to
translate the DPN into GERMAN.

Kind regards
