Fair enough and thanks for the info Brian. I was planning to start a
French localization project myself in the coming months and Arnaud
Estienne, a French volunteer, proposed to work on this as well. May be
we should think about hosting such a sprint at EuroPython since it's in
July, we'll have more experience with it and I and Arnaud could meet in
person, may be with others interested in localization (better chance to
meet them there...). What do you guys think? (Brian and Ted specifically).
BTW, Arnaud, are you here?... :) You told me you subscribed to the list
but I haven't seen any intro email from you yet. May be it's a good time
to pitch in and say 'hi'... :)
