We do not have translations in Help Activity.
And is not a good idea use the same tools/strategies to translate a few
strings in a activity
and a full text document.

Include multiple languages in the Help activity does not scale.

We can use get-books/pathagar to resolve the multiple languages and the
infinite storage problem.

I think the first problem is have the updated manuals, and can be done in a
few days by a group of volunteers.


I like directory-capable filesystems, but they suck at the
