[gnome-es] Fwd: SL-GNOME-OLPC PR, final version; will be on wires at 10:00 AM EST on Monday

Hola a todos,

Stormy Peters, de la Fundación GNOME, me ha mandado hace unas horas el
mensaje de abajo. Necesitan una traducción muy urgente para la nota de
prensa. Yo no puedo ayudar, en breve me voy al aeropuerto y estaré
todo el día volando, de hecho llego a trabajar directo desde el
aeropuerto, así que si podéis coordinaros y enviarles una traducción,
sería estupendo.

Un saludo a todos.

Would it be possible for the Spanish translation team to help
translate this press release?

Sorry for not giving you advance notice.
