Ok, I'll rephrase:

I'm trying to keep a translated FrontPage in Norwegian, on

But to translate FrontPageNews is an Impossible job (well, it's not
impossible, but it doesn't pay the bill to do the work, and it prevents
me from doing the work that does pay the bill) , and it's of little use
to translate everything. What I propose is to keep some page
FrontPageNewsFeed (I noticed that you have explained about FronPageNews
on, yes, the page FrontPageNews).

Then we could have something like this on the FrontPage:
= Latest official and unofficial Debian-related news =

Then the translators could write something like (not translated now, but
you get the concept I hope):
= Latest official and unofficial Debian-related news =
These links are mostly in English

That way, I could remove the filter I have that says that updates done
by DavidMorenoGarza should be filed under Debian/Wiki, and automaticly
marked read.
If DavidMorenoGarca later changes something, I would still notice, and
act, either by ignoring the update, or translate what he updated.

I do want to include the news from FrontPage onto the translated
StartSide but I do not want to edit the page every 6th hour.

I dont either see the front page as a static page, but I do think we
should have translated pages of the fronpage, and maybe later, when we
get the manpower, also translate some other pages. But to ease the
burden of the translators, I ask to have the dynamic content on
"feed"'s, and instead including them on the frontpage.

I have no problem updating the page once or twice a week, but every 6th
hour ? no way.
