It ought to be possible to do a rewrite to go to say:

www.openoffice.org/contributing.html (if en)
www.openoffice.org/fr/contributing.html (if fr)

We can then put contributing pages in English into each NL site. A first task for NL volunteers
can be to translate these to their own language.

Dave
