We didn't have the Calanco translation notification system yet, when you 
installed several installer help pages, so we don't know whether they 
are up-to-date

It would be really great if you'd like to compare your translations of 
installer help with the current English version of the same pages.

At this moment, apart from the index page, which was translated by 
swecarp, all Swedish you see in the following pages was done by you, 
even if some pages have been moved or split since you translated them.

To see the English version of a page, just copy its address and remove 
/sv from it

So compare

marathon once the new Mageia 3 background is in the left panel of 

If you mail to doc-discuss ml which files are up-to-date and which files 
aren't (and, if possible, what needs to be changed for those), that 
would be really, really great.

Once we're sure the translations are up-to-date, we can get the 
translation notifications for those pages (a diff each time the English 
original is changed)

Pages that are up-to-date will have <i18n at mageia.eu> or
<i18n-sv at mageia.eu> in them (not visible while installing)

Kind regards,
