There is one thing where we probably would *realy* benefit from german
languag support: a sysinst translation.
Having the installer talk your native language is an immense bonus. It may
help avoid errors for those not realy fluent at computer english and it
But: it's a lot of menues and messages to be translated.
We have a french version, so it's doable ;-)
