Using Gencrap 2004.2 as well ;-) (I really shoud not write that, it's archived!)

IRC and forums and private mail are more than sufficient for contextless talk on various generic and specific aspects of translations.
Usefulness is not defined by volume. What's the fuss about subscribing to a mailing list? IRC is not archived and requires all parties to be connected at the same time. forums.g.o is for users. private mail is not public.

French translators do talk to each other via their mailing list. There is nothing that could replace the ML. Have a loot at Traffic is low but it is very useful.

That's a clear No. English is the default and that's why it does not have to be in all docs and why it is #IMPLIED. We have almost 1,000 .xml English files. Try to tell everyone that they have to add lang="en" because English is not the default language anymore...

You're the Lead Translator (btw, any news from devrel to have your name on the devs listings?) and you're responsible for QA. It does not mean you have to do it all yourself ;-) Cheers, -- / Xavier Neys \_ Gentoo Documentation Project / French & Internationalisation Lead \ /\
