Thanks a lot for preparing this, Erica.

A few tips for the next issues, that would make the translators' work

* Make the paragraphs as short as possible.
* Use lists (numbered or bulleted) wherever relevant.
* Announce the first version at last a week before distribution; preferably
* Freeze the text at least two days before distribution, and announce the
freezing on this mailing list (if you did announce it - sorry, I must have
missed it).

Again, thanks to all the people involved!
