And then we do the same for French, Russian, German, Spanish, Chinese,
Polish, Bavarian ;-), Portuguese, Norvegian, Danish, Raeto Romanian, Kiswahili?
Don't think so ;-)

I'd say as the very first part in the README file, we write something like

Foreign languages (language, langue, Sprache, lingua, ...):
---> open documentation/README.<country_domain>

Sounds better than polluting the Wine root directory with many different
localized versions.

(also, if people still haven't learned to look at a file called "README" first,
then they're not supposed to use Wine anyway)

I still think that someone should put a system in place to make sure
that all localized content gets kept current properly.
(otherwise we might just end up deleting more modern versions
of installation-und-konfiguration.german again and again...)

That file once was a beautiful piece of documentation... and then it died...
horribly even. ;-)

Anyway, thanks for your docu maintenance!
