Well, yes, I know the argument. I'm just in no way an evangelist and even
don't want to be. I'm interested only in translation mostly because I like
it: both translation as a process and the fact my working space is in my
language. Proselyting is not for me but there are some people who do want it
- there is already even the web site http://mageia.planet.ee (for now just
redirect to http://www.mageia.org/et/) maintainer of which has some plans
for content special for Estonians (some visual installation guide, maybe
some packages or scripts for further localisation (e.g. for Estonian
electronic ID)) - essentially probably something like he did for Mandriva (
http://mandriva.planet.ee/). Though, I might ask once more is there somebody
who'd be interested in translating Mageia blog...
