Sure -- it won't be like a job where you have set hours. Do things as
you can and if you want, you can add backup people and so forth. I'll
setup the page in the next day or two, memory permitting. :)

Yeah, a translation team would be better. I guess the translators can
talk amongst themselves and see what they'd like to have as a contact

I add the profiles. I think there's info about profiles and such on the
involvement page... in any case, I need you to send me your profile (and
actually, anyone here who is contributing to Debian needs to send me
theirs as well).

I'll probably reorganize it in such a way that there will be individual
pages -- as it grows it's more difficult to navigate, but the filesize
increases as well, so it may be better to break it up.

Leaving the rest to translation people... :)
