i would like to add to that " and we as people actively interested in
i18n have got used to do very little to help ourselves"

i cant agree with the assumption that anyone from the ximian team (or
anybody else that writes free software) owes something to the i18n
effort just because they are paid for what they do. i'm almost certain
that the actual paying people often dont care that much about i18n, so
i'd rather thank all evo developers (and all free software developers)
when they do something that helps i18n.

yes i am fully aware they do, yet i dont see a reason for them to be
frustrated and vent on a public mailing list, and i clearly feel a
little asshamed when i do only bugreporting,  especially on i18n matters

having the money and caring dont come together as often as we would
like, and its bad to generalize and assume developers attitude from the
attitude of the business department
