Ha, so it's true that no ones gives nothing in exchange for nothing :)

I don't know if Mike spoke any German. Anyway, remember de Winter? He translated the howto from German into Spanish, may be he should be contacted.

Agreed, in which case, a German could translate into English in first instance, even if he gets it grammatically incorrect, and then an English put it right and so on. All this can be done here.

;) but I knew ... just trying to show what the manual could look like in Spanish if I tried to translate directly from German ...

Umh, a [de] -> [en] translator won't be that easy to find. Well, enough to know the project didn't split between German and The Rest of the World. Wim, I hope 'pserver' is working fine and you still have my key for it. I'll commit the changes some time today. Let me know if I have to send you my key again (0x42337AE6). Also, could you provide me with some statistics for mirroring GnuPG (both ftp and www), please?
