 The thing is quite clear documented on /devel/website/translation_hints:

,--------------------------------> quote <--------------------------------

 It is even written in bold letters...

 If I might pick this up: Can the translators of the following languages
pretty please update their CD/http-ftp/index.wml file, it fails to build
due to being outdated:

 -) dutch
 -) italian
 -) spanish (hey, Javier!)

 Thanks in advance,
P.S.: The build failure occurs because
   english/CD/http-ftp/cdimage_fsn_mirrors.list isn't there anmore but
   still referenced in these translations.
shit, fixed, updated.
