I don't have that list.  I think the proper thing to do is to announce
this on the mailman-i18n mailing list, update the appropriate Mailman
documentation, and then encourage people to sign up to Rosetta and
submit the proper paperwork.  There are a few people who have already
done the proper submission, but those people would only be able to
submit Mailman documentation.  I think we should ask that they do a
blanket disclaimer so that they can join the more general GNU
translation group.

Sounds good!  More discussion of that should go to
mailman-developers at and/or mailman-i18n at

Let me announce this on the mailman-i18n list and then I'll put together
a tarball for you and send it to you.

Okay, let me look into doing that.  I'll contact you off-list if I have
any problems.

Cheers, and thanks!
