And where were all the sportsmen who always pulled you though?

writing up their memoirs for a paper-back edition

Why only in unofficial? I think translation is a very important thing for distributions

Roman

don't bother that name "unofficial", I think it's rather "additional". I agree that
translation is an important point, but - translation packages are often quit
big. Arch still fits on one 650MB CD. Translation can be that few MB's which
make it too big. Finally it's the developers decision. The unofficial respository
does not men unsupported.  smile

Re: i18n for the next release of KDE

neri is indeed correct. unofficial is indeed a misnomer. all packages there are officially supported. unofficial is really just an additional repo whose intention is to represent those packages which do not appear on the install iso. the best way to view it:

Official= all packages that can be installed from the iso
Unofficial= all packages not found on the iso.

the idea is to keep the iso on one disc but offer everything on that disc that allows a user to be as functional as possible while not compromising the speed of the install procedure, etc.

i have long advocated more language support packages and that is is why i kept pressing for the addition of the i18n catagory. because it is in unofficial please do not infer from that that the development team does not support and encourage foreign language support.

with respect to the upcoming catagory i just wish to say that i will include only the opackages you users weish to contribute. this will ensure better support for those packages while reducing maintenance of possibly unused language packages.

i hope that clears some of your questions up roman.
