Simply have a look at the "NEWS" file in CVS ;-) The version number,
we're currently working at is 0.99 and got the developmental code name
"Rotted Bovine Lactation" long time ago ;-) We could simply take this
over which would be just fine I guess.

And we're getting it right with 15th June Sunday, evening as the release
date?! Then we'd also send out the translator informing mail to
gnome-i18n gnome org

I don't know, but I guess there is some adaptation needed for the
gtranslator/help/*Makefiles - we try to create HTML documents there - do
we still need HTML docs on GNOME 2.x or are the sgml docs fine enough?!
Then the prob would evade of course...

Besides this, we've got some assertion warning present yet, which
doesn't seem to be really logical ("changed" signal for the text widget
I guess:

<opening tr. from CVS gedit/po>

(gtranslator:1998): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1893: signal
`changed' is invalid for instance `0x82b79d0'

Hey ya, right, this UTF-8 step would be also a quite fine thing to do
:-) I guess, this is quite easy to get over the prefs codes and a) the
GtrLanguages list or b) via prefs_init.c and the initializing
functionality thereover (e.g. one could set "UTF-8" as default encoding
for the translator without having any translator data present yet).

I know, they do even want more - packages :-) Erhm yes, what about our
readers from the list?! Are there any volunteers who want to do packages
besides our previously existing packagers (dunno if they are still
caring about gtranslator therefore this formularia sentence) ;-)
