Translations are never easy. AFAICT, it's been based on single individuals effort. In many
cases it was started by users with enough interest in Geronimo to start working on translating
the docs but still not very active on the mailing lists. With that said, some times their
effort went unnoticed or not noticed in time, hence the differences between releases in terms
of how the translations got handled.

For G 1.x, translation effort went directly into the same confluence space we had the "source".
For 2.x we have a separate space, this is probably the most practical approach given the current
situation.

So, for Geronimo 2.1, we put all our effort on the GMOxDOC21 space and then create separate
spaces as needed for the different languages. I suspect we'll see more interest in translating
the docs some time sooner than later as we continue to fill up the 2.1 doc.

Cheers!
