document reviewed by someone other than the author, so that we catch any 
typos before we ship the documentation.

One job which should not be much extra effort for people who are already 
translating, is to check documents which has been upgraded from 
osgeo-live4.0 to version 4.5.

What this will involve is:
* Look for documents which have moved to the 4.5draft status

grammatically correct
* Confirm that the version number now points at the new version
* Update the status spreadsheet for the document to 4.5final
* Add your name down as the reviewer (to confirm that the doc has been 

That is it.
The job can be shared between a few people, and I expect a few 
translators can help with this task.

happy to help with new project overview reviews.
