Hi Tetsuya,

I don't want to repeat what others already said about your efforts to 
translate the ASL into Japanese. It's probably a nice start for a 
translation and I understand your (good) intentions but I think that 
you've unfortunately touched one of the most sensitive parts of the 
ASF, and all this licensing stuff has to be handled with great, great 

However, I'd like to welcome you over here at the httpd-docs project 
and 'offer' you an alternative to the license.xml file ;->

(both attached) with the Japanese translations of httpd's error

there's even a README file (and you can of course always ask on this 
list if you have any problems in understanding whats going on).

b) review the attached translations

c) re-work the attached patch to be able to apply it cleanly to the 
current version of the typemap files

d) send in the results and be happy to have done another piece of great 

Okay, as said above, this is merely an offer, just if you're 
interested... I certainly don't want to push any work on you; I just 
came across this stuff while cleaning up one of my old harddisks and 
had to think of *Tetsuya-san* instantly :)
