>> Important Notes:
>> 	• A language pack is not a release for its own and has to be installed over a
stable release with the same version number and platform. It contains resource files for a
specific language and platform to show, e.g., menus, dialogs, error messages in your language.
It may contain translated Help content. Language packs are created if at least 80% of the
user interface (UI) is translated. In case it is not fully localized, some elements of the
UI or help topics will display in English as default language.

right, I've copied it from the normal "other.html".

Apache OpenOffice, please see our list of third-party ports and distributions.

I've added some text and mentioned here the 100% rule.

Also right. I will do this as a separate task.

the popular order..)

Ask 5 people an you will get 6 opinions. ;-)

I can sort it via alphabetically order. But then Windows is at the end 
which is somehow also not the best solution. Hm.
