Yes, that'd be cool.  Also, publishing proper commits on individual sources
files would be helpful for collaboration.  (We've discussed this on IRC.)

One minor remark: On your slide "languages" you list 30 languages.

However, on https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/News/2019/20190415 it

 Localization status
 76 languages are supported in this release.
 Full translation for 38 of them.

More details at

The tricky thing is: different aspects of Debian system have different levels
of translation status.  I believe the Debian installer is available in most

Looking at e.g. the GNOME system, it says, at
https://help.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.32/ :

 Thanks to members of the worldwide GNOME Translation Project, GNOME 2.32
 offers support for more than 50 languages with at least 80 percent of strings
 translated, including the user and administration manuals for many languages. 

So, listing only 30 languages in your slides is a bit too pessimistic imho :)

Thanks for your work!

HTH, Bye,
