Dear Tim,

Pardon the top-posting, but I couldn't help but notice that the one list you
didn't include was the Sugar Labs / OLPC / eToys Localization list, which is
perhaps your best avenue to reach our localizers, so I have cc'ed that list
on this reply.


I would like to point out that there are still some eToys strings that need
completion on our Pootle server in the languages you listed.


and there is a great deal of work that is needed on Haitian Kreyol (both
Sugar and eToys), but we have not had much luck in recruiting localizers.
Help from Waveplace would be greatly appreciated.


Warmest Regards,

volunteeer Sugar Labs / OLPC / eToys Pootle admin.
