Ie read a thread some months ago on GIMP developers saying that the Gimp-ghelp should be designed in such a way that, when a page did not exist for a locale, it would fall back to other languages in a given order.
Was that implemented? If so..is the fallback to swedish en ? And Dennis: No, deleting the swedish docs won't give you the English docs.
