migla writes: Debian developer and author of Cahier de l’Admin Debian — "The Debian Administrator's Handbook" in French, announced campaigns for crowd-funding the translation and liberation of the book. The translation is estimated to require six person-months, for which € 15K (about $20K) of donations are being solicited. The price-tag for the immaterial property of the publisher is set to € 25K (approaching $35K). Is it worth it?

    I accidentally the name RaphaÃl Hertzog from the summary.

    Also the part of the centence where I say "in French" is ambiguous at best, possibly grammatically incorrect. Maybe just scratch "in French" and insert ",RaphaÃl Hertzog" in it's place?

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
