I'll take this as a request to port the Polish NL project's site next. Not tonight but in
a few days there will be:

http://ooo-site.apache.org/pl

I've found that each NL site has very much their own main page.

ES is especially different.

I don't have a favorite, each has a certain charm and style.

If we were willing to have each page just be a translation.

faq.en.html
faq.html
faq.ja.html
faq.zh.html

For the podling incubator/openofficeorg I like this pattern of url completion.

The concern I have about other language versions within the podling site that they will diverge.
Someone will change the en version and won't be able to change the zh, ja, or de versions.
The maintainer of a version may move on.

The existing NL sites are proof of this divergence. The DE site is very large and also quite
out of date. I think that community moved onto the wiki some time ago.

Regards,
Dave
