Hi, there's lot of work I've done to document all the stuff, so I'd
really appreciate if anyone here has the time to translate the howtos.
The idea with the copy back sounds fair. But please don't forget to
refer the original work within your translation ;-)


Would you mind if they were copied to the official Debian wiki - if I
translated the ones that are only in German you could then copy them
back (if that sounds like a fair trade).

Thank you Chrisoph - I probably won't get a chance to start until this weekend, and I'll need to check with debian-www first. The link to a business that "might" be a problem. If not possible to include a link your site I shall contact you.


P.S. The Asterisk guide is great!

This how-to collection is dedicated to a variety of topics related to the free operating system Debian GNU / Linux. Since I use Debian, both for my own projects, as well as for customers, including a variety of servers, I decided to discuss a selection of frequently recurring themes and issues, and to publish in the form of how-tos and tutorials.

As Debian GNU / Linux does an excellent job on both servers and desktops, I have divided this collection of how-tos accordingly.

All tutorials are designed for easy setup, and to provide the required knowledge that the system administrator should have in order to understand the processes involved. Even if all the howtos have been repeatedly validated, there may be some confusing information or mistakes. This is to be expected with such a complex collection of howtos and tutorials, so please add comments on the relevant pages ;-)
