  I use only English my self. But I do get a lot of requests for es_MX during my
  talks. I'm sure there is some words that might be different from ES to es_MX.
  Perhaps it's just people wanting to customize it so as to feel more comfortable
  with KDE SC.

  But, what I can do is send people interested in contributing to the es_MX here,
  so they can instead contribute to ES. I see no harm in that and I'm sure
  they could identify any differences, never hurts to mix it up a bit I always
  say. :-)

  Do you guys have any Mexican contributors yet?

  Agreed, I'm also very interested in this as well.
