Hi Frank,

It seems to me implementing a translation can, if done properly, require more 
technical skill than documenting, but if you wish to move it to Translation 
and link the other pages, that's OK by me.
It would be good if it is made really clear that it applies to both gnucash 
and gnucash-docs repos.


I don't remember seeing a response from you about if Mac OSX has 'make' by 
default. Did I miss something? I don't want to hassle you - I see you have 
been quite busy :-).

Regards, Chris Good
