I made a patch for the installer. It *probably* will be translatable
soon. Please, take a look here:


Simo need to do some clean on the code. I am just waiting him to patch
the installer again.

There will be no radical change in the pacman's translating process.
Dan can still host the files and voinull stays with his part, for
example. It's just a question of integration and this involves news,
information and instructions for the translation process.

These are just ideas and I am open to suggestions.

BTW, i liked the idea of translate the man-pages. I will take a look
at this later.
