I couldn't find the scripts you referred to.  Can you give me a URL?

I'll leave them in for the moment.  If someone knows them to be gone, let me 
know and I'll remove the references to them.

OK - I think I've got all that in.  Just a few more questions and we can get 
the whole set of pages into translation.

First - I can't find anything recent about KPhotoAlbum on Windows.  Did this 
have to be dropped when you ported to KDE4?  If so, I'll drop that section.

I've removed some of the references to UserBase pages - substituting links to 
your project pages for things like Downloads, Getting Involved, and 
bugs.kde.org. to search for open bugs.

I propose to kill the following pages -

That leaves just
http://userbase.kde.org/KPhotoAlbum_FAQ and
http://userbase.kde.org/KPhotoAlbum_on_Knoppix to go through.  I'll work on 
them today, and hopefully we can get the whole set up and running in the next 
day or so.  If either of those pages has things that you want removed, please 
let me know.

There are some things that are clearly out of date.  For instance, "KimDaBa 
2.1 I will likely allow you to have multiple directory roots, including 
external sources" - if you could simply comment as to whether such things are 
now included, I can fix them.  I'll come back with any tricky questions, as I 

Thanks for the help so far.  I'm looking forward to seeing this completed and 
starting the translations.
