Those projects sound great, but I'm not sure I understand. #1 makes sense,
extending the current documentation, but porting, as in translating to a
different language? If so I only speak, read, and write English. I'll study
up on what's currently available and the current items within the
documentation itself. I've noticed when looking through documentation in
general it's usually outdated or revisions need made. For these projects I
do have a question - do you recommend using the latest release or the LTS
