As said in my previous mail: Our policy is to avoid language-specific

For example, during the last days I started updating minor stuff in the
Wiki up to rewriting complete pages. If the translator group won't do
the same for the foreign language documentation, it is quickly outdated
or wrong.

Additionally only people speaking the language, and having the technical
background, can verify if everything is correct. Just a simple example:
Many people use wrong terms like "Samba 4" when they mean "Samba AD",
"PDC" instead of "DC", and so on.

However, all English-language contributions to our official
documentation are appreciated. :-)
