Frankly, I mostly dropped DrGeo until I got manifestion of interest
from several places and I never distribute it in image, only for my
own experiment in high school. It is José who did the SAR file packed
with the .po files.
But soon, I will do a distribution image based, I will have to use the
etoys if I want the languages. BTW, are you planing for a new
squeakland image, OLPC Etoys based, it will make life easier for that
later plan?
