Hi John und Geert,
I have a general question about updating the translations. Sometimes, when
I use the GnuCash application in Russian or German, I find some places with
missing or not quite correct translations or formatting.
What kind of translation update would you prefer? Should I collect such
small improvements in translations / formatting for a long time and then
file it together?
Or would it be okay, if I would file such improvements in small packages -
for example, once a week / every two week?
