On the contrary, we care greatly about translating the documentation into
other languages. We're working with Transifex right now to have the
documentation translated:

We welcome your participation! Michael (CCed) is the main contact with
Transifex. He may have a better idea about how members of the Qubes community

I didn't mean to suggest that it's immune to criticism. On the contrary,

I think it's fair to beseech documentation contributors to consider these
things. But, in the end, it's up to them what knowledge (if any) they will
