Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your encouraging words. Yes of course I would love to have my
efforts integrated into the Apache/Wiki project. Have absolutely no
experience though how wiki works. I actually did have a look at the wiki a
few weeks ago, and found nowhere where to post a link. Could you help me
here? As to license: I'm open to anything which is open. Please tell me how
I should reformulate that part.

At present I'm fine tuning English and German versions simulataneously, to
make sure they are both exactly the same, then will adapt the French to
these. Kateryna has translated just the introduction into Russian and
Ukrainian, so that's a nice step. Three students at our uni are doing an
Arab version which should be complete by March.

All the best and thanks
