No, the work should be done with sources from netbsd-current.
they can then be pulled to the netbsd-4 branche.

Well, copy e.g. the english files (msg.*.en) and translate them.
Then look at the related menus.* files and see where changes need to be 
made, similar for the *.c files.

See that sysinst compiles.

For testing, use vnconfig to setup vnd0, and when you run sysinst, it will 
offer you installation on vnd0. Do that to go through all the screens and 
all the possibilities to see if there is something wrong with the text
or formatting.

Send me any changes ("cvs diff -u") and new files.

Use tech-install@ for communication.
