Who am I to say which are the most important Gnome packages?  All I want is 
some files :-)  But I've got you thinking about which ones, now .....

Didn't Owain finish gnome-applets?  He certainly did 100% of whatever it was 
we had.

Fine, send me epiphany.

Very cootchie indeed.

That's why I suggested it :-)

Possibly, but you chaps can sort that out <grin>.  All I mean is that with Evo 
being 6,389 strings, that's far too many to put up as one file - people could 
spend an evening doing translations, and hardly see the bar move at all.  No 
use.  Alan said earlier it might be possible to segment it, but if not, I'll 
just put up chunks about 800 strings long.
