So now I ask you about this:
Shall I continue to translate the Manual?
- Of course i won't publish anything without your explicit permission.
- I'm going to translate the texinfo source.
- I would like to publish finished translations under the terms of the "GNU
Free Documentation License", but that's actually your decision not mine.
- On my System i got make version 3.79.1 and the actual manual also
describes version 3.79, so i think it's up to date and well maintained.
- If you want I keep you up to date with my work, at the moment i did not
start any translations yet.

Please give me some advise on 'how to continue'.

Thanks in advance,
Jan Kechel / student University Potsdam - Germany
