I apologize. I thought I could transfer the QA discussion of documentation away from unuseful phpbb forums to the Mailing List, but if this is not desired, then I'll just restrict it to IRC and private mail. You can also delete this list since, as it can't be used for discussion concerning the documentation it will be rather pointless, I apologize the inconvenience, I should have stated the meaning of the list I required more clearly.

Yes, I have already used the [Finnish] tag which I picked up from some other translation I found, I'll change it for the next submission.
>Please submit an UTF-8 encoded version.
Yes, I've already asked this.

Heh, I don't think it's worth of extraneous mechanism of mailing lists just to inform people about bug numbers. I'm gonna take a big guess and assume that anyone who has enough time to make constructive criticism on documentation has to be capable of using the query button of bugzilla as well.

Ok. It might also be useful if this was stated somewhere in the documentation or somewhere, or it could be that I have just missed it. So just a clarification to Finnish doc team, please send the first drafts of your translations directly to bugzilla, we'll be spamming the bugzilla with the updates until documentation is ready and valid, and discussion continues in the forums and IRC like before creation of this list. I apologize the inconvenience. -- Slightly annoyed and confused regards, Flammie, Gentoo Linux Documentation's Finnish head translator.
