I was asking because the wiki link for "translation"
points to the documentation project, but I see now that it refers to
"documentation" and "websites".

I sent it to the translation mailing list:
It seems to be the first message to that list too ;-)
If I recall it correctly, there was another list called i18n before, but
we switched to this one at some point.

Anyway, I'll send a better self introduction, because that one doesn't
have most of the required bits.

I already have a CVS account for sending translations (I presume it
won't be the same?), and also an account in the account system.

Thanks a lot, I'll send a self introduction shortly.
