Thanks for your more constructive message.  So people wanting to 
review/translate can get in touch with you at least to see stuff that 
has already been done but not committed.

As far as delays in getting things comitted.  That is always a 
possibility in the open source world where everything is done by 
volunteers.  This list is generally quite good at picking up on 
contributions.  But submitters need to take responsibility for sending 
reminders every week or so if they don't see action.
