Yes, that why i pointed out (hopefully) that it might not allways be the 
best idea. But if im thinking myself for example, i am (or was) 
administrator and i've allways had some ideas that i could donate 
something back to apache project but technical means are not enabling me 
to do that. I'm quite busy keeping my daywork and family going so, 
making things easy to do translations aint that bad thing. And even now, 
there's people talking about that translations are not getting to the 
public but are lost in some patches in the mailing list. That is not 
very nice thing for those who haven taken the time and help out apache.

So my serious question is: Why hog all the work for people who are not 
doing them ?
