Dear Donald,

I have some comments.
It would be nice if each comments are considered.

1. Japanese paperback is not the only one published

After the blog article you refereed in the draft,
new translated books has made also available.
Now, we have four paperbacks to Jessie version
(English [1], French [2,3], Japanese [4,5], and Spanish [6,7]).
It would be nice if you mention other translated paperbacks also, I think.

3. Donation of Japanese paperback form authors to Japanese communities

Authors has donated three Japanese paperback to Japanese communities.
Each communities are using the paperback as a material for
attracting people to coming conference booth or local meeting
and/or promoting new contribution for Japanese translation. In fact,
some DDs has publically opened bug report to Japanese translation [1,2]
and merged their suggestions with rapidity.
