|[For those that aren't aware of it.  Rafal

SUGJ (Samba Users Group Japan) also translated all documents into
Japanese and distribute with Samba Japanese Edition. Now for only
Samba 2.0.x and we are translating for Samba 2.2.x now.

|This sounds workable.

As Deniz and I said, manual page *system* is already i18n'ed.

|That's great because, I gave very similiar filenames to sgml

SUGJ has already made i18n'ed SWAT, as far as your browser supports
HTTP/1.1 content negotiation and you read documents via SWAT, you can
see a documents of proper language version if installed.

If you are insterested in it, please download from .

And look at

I want to merge it to Samba 2.2.x and HEAD. It is not difficult

Ok, but for archiving, this should be a problem, I think. For Samba
Japanese Edition only added Japanese translated documents, the size of
archive increased about 1.5MB.

|I'm going to back up a little and pose the question

I am also thinking that. Sorry for not to send fully proposal.
This week it takes long time about Code Red Worm :(
