This is a great point.  This was actually committed a little while ago
in CVS but I hadn't sifted through all my commit email to see it until
just a couple days ago.

I immediately published a new in quite a few languages.  That's
when I discovered the 4 locales that were *WAY* out of date, which
prompted my issue for the FDSCo meeting on Tuesday re: stale
translations.  If you look at some of these locales you'll see some way
out-of-date guidance.  It's kind of a chicken-and-egg problem when you
think about it: how does a new contributor figure out how to get
involved to fix the document on getting involved? :-)
