Announcing the Ubuntu.com Website Localization Project

(would you include ubuntu-website at lists.canonical.com in replies? I'll make
sure your messages get through)

It shows en-us on my PC but my preferred lang is en-gb.

What we're looking for should look something like: en-gb, en-us;q=0.8,
en;q=0.5

I agree that geoip is not a good solution because I really dislike how some
of my favourite websites change to a different language when I'm in a
different country. I wish I could magically learn Spanish simply by visiting
Spain for a few days. :-)
