Hi Cameron,

thanks answering quickly.
Maybe I didn't write my original email clear enough, when I mentioned...
- I know everything what's in wiki and I've understand what that means.
I've read wiki pages many times and followed when they have been updated
- yes I know the old manners how to translate but I'm already OSGeo Live
Transifex translator, only waiting for context
- yes, I mentioned that flyer and other written material are old and
asked when committee will upgrade them
- and I asked if there is some other material as most items have been
updated none existing (over lined)

So thanks. I think that I'll manage to tell to board what is the
situation. We'll find our own ways to inform possible sponsors etc.

Good night,
