Well. When I anounced the paper in April the first time, a german offerd
his help to translate it. I will contact him and ask if he is still
willing and able to do it. A native englich speaker also offerd his help
to review the translation. Maybe someone is willing to review the german
version first bevore translation. I already maild
about that as he already did a review of the April version.=20

Sure. If you can find any additional volunteers let me know.=20

The paper itself is still work in progress. I need to draw some diagrams
and fix some bugs in the driver. While writing the last section of the
paper I noticed that my driver has some serious bugs in the error
handling code, so they need to be fixed... This will take an other week
or so.=20

I will post an anouncement to and when it is done.=20
