This is what we will try in this first round. We have lots of fuzzy in
grassmods and that is making me a bit nervous =D

This would be ideal, but since GRASS is a bit conservative on CVS
write access that won't work so clear cut. I understand this as the
devels do not want some newbie to screw up the whole project.

Markus, would it be possible to grant write access just to the locale
directory on CVS?\
That should solve the issue of translataros write access to cvs. I
understand that creating a separate CVS just for translations is out
of the question.

So, what I am talking to Daniel is for him to send me his whole work,
I diff and patch to mine, diff from CVS and the diff goes both to him
and Markus.

Au revoir, Eve.
