Congratulations to our Serbian translation community on their fine
work.  The article that Oisin passes on (refer to forwarded message
below) is an interesting one.

An interesting LWN article[1] reports that the FLP[2] is working very
successfully with the Serbian Fedora community. The article will be
available to non-subscribers after Dec 25th. In the meanwhile a brief
summary is that in 2007 the Serbian government initiated the
localization of several pieces of Free Software (Firefox, Thunderbird,
OpenOffice, Fedora and Ubuntu). The Fedora work seems to have gone
extremely well, with 99% of strings translated on time, in comparison to
Ubuntu which was delayed and resulted in a fork. Congratulations to the
FLP and especially their Serbian contributors.
