Slowly but Steadily Getting There


The Greek FreeBSD translation team has been working on and off on the Greek translation of the FreeBSD documentation set for a long time now. We started getting a lot of commit actions when Manolis joined the team, and he is now an undisputed “overlord” of the Greek Handbook. He gates patches from other contributors, and has submitted far more text than me at this point:

$ pwd
/hg/doc/el
$ hg churn

We have Greek versions of more than half of the English documentation tree, and there are 18 files marked for update with special comments in the source of each file:

Tonight, I think I am going to work on bringing the “new-users” and “problem-reports” articles up to date. Here’s to hope that the “checkupdate” output list will be shorter tomorrow :)
