I would not mind. Just bad that I will probably not have time. :-(

However I do not mind to be asked (KBabel mailing list, KDE Bugs or 
personally). I have not much experience with KBabel or with XLIFF but some 
experience with OASIS Open Document (the specifications have some common 
points) and with the Gettext file format so I could help in some aspects.

(Just be careful that currently KBabel cannot cope with a fulll XLIFF 1.1 
specification anyway, as it is too much linked with Gettext's PO files, in 
KDE flavor only additionally.)

Have a nice day!

PS.: if there are some other volunteers for KBabel, especially for helping to 
add SVN support to KBabel's catalog manager, they are welcomed too.
This is about KDE 3.5, not KDE 4! (translators will translate KDE4 on KBabel 
of KDE 3.5.) Please contact the KBabel mailing list.


Have a nice day!
