The list is more or less dead - over the past 6 months there where only
between 1 and 5 messages per month.

I do think it would be a good idea to at least send a translation summary
once a quarter to the translators list and maybe include hackers and
general - many might not be aware of the 80% rule.

Also an automated summary one ore two months before a major release as a
"call for action" would be good to avoid such mishaps.

Last but not least I'd be able to help with the german translation, but I
have no clear idea how, or what the actual status is. Are German
translators actually needed?

And while I have no problem entering some texts on a website or edit a
file with an editor, the process described here:


sounds complicated and leaves me unclear on quite a few things, for
instance how would I submit whatever work I've done? Do I need git? An
account? Where? And how does it all work?

I guess a lot of potential translators who aren't programmers would be
left baffled, too.

Best regards,
