Sorry too, I didn't follow the thread at all. I just started to search 
at the moment for the mail to find where was the project and found this 
answer, from half hour ago :).

You can use my nickname. Is there anything auto-generated for the 
lessons? With aspell dictionary for example. Or is there some work to do 
? In this Case I would be happy to help.

Best Regards,
