  Sorry for not being clear.  Korakurider has responded in more detail
and we definitely proceed in the right way.  As he wrote, if you think
it is fine (and perhaps it is more consitent to use phrases from one
team) to "wipe" the existing one (as probably most of them are
derivatives of LinEx work).  Some people may get a bit of bad
feelings...  So, please speak up before that.

  Another thing is the difference of european Spanish and new world
Spanish.  I don't know how much it really matters but the terminology
of new stuff like around computer can be quite different (ordenador
<=> computer^^;) What we can do is to save the current version just
as back up, upload the version from LinEx, and make sub language group
