There was a discussion on this patch on the dev list.  I would have
cc'de Piotr but he didn't put his full name or contact information in
the patch comment.

There was a concern over the link to the PrOOo-Box website.   Some of
us (including me) were concerned about putting advertisements like
that on an NL homepage.  As a non-profit we need to be fair and not
promote one 3rd party over another.

So one solution discussed was to do similar to what we do with the
main English pages with winPenPack.  We have a general page for 3rd
party ports and distributions:

So it might be good to add info about PrOOo-Box to that page.  And
then if you want, you could translate that entire page, or link to it.

I agree that we want changes to be committed quickly.  But that
requires good communications between the contributor and the committer
who checks in the code.  So a good idea would be to send a note to the
dev list, saying, "Hello, I'm Piotr.  I'm planning on making some
changes to the de website.  I'll need some help getting this
committed.  If anyone has a question regarding a patch, please send me
a note).

I understand enough German to review patches for the de NL page, but
it would be better, of course, to have a native speaker.
