Awesome, didn't know! Yes that is what I was planing to do! I mean a 
spanish USER-list and a spanish translation of the page.

I will contact infrastructure ASAP.

That would be you, right ;-)?
Do you would like a monthly report or something similar?
I will write down my ideas and will send them to you directly.

Jupp, exactly. I do not want to diverge from the original. My intention 
is to ease the usage of cocoon/-lenya for spanish speaking people. It 
seems to be very import for spanish speaking user to express themself in 
their own language.

Any tips how to prefend that?
I think one way is to open up a spanish user list and NOT a dev list.
So the developers would still only speak in english (but if you are a 
software developer I think you should be able to speak in english anyway).

Like I stated before: I just want to help spanish cocoon/-lenya user 
with our application. the way: how about to do this as well with cocoon? I guess Antonio 
could help me on that as well. ;-)

Thank you very much for this information and I will let you know about 
the development.

King regards and saludos
