[OLPC library] revision to the Manual

thanks so much for your continued efforts on the project, everyone I've
shown my printed copies of the two manuals to has been thoroughly impressed!
I also agree with your thoughts on timing updated revisions of the
manuals in coordination with the Sugar / OLPC software release cycle.
In terms of localization there are some efforts underway by Rita in
Germany (CC'ed) and here in Vienna we've also discussed doing a
translation sprint over a weekend, unfortunately we haven't found a date
to actually sit down and do it.
Since I'm currently gathering some materials for a post on olpcnews that
I want to do on "how YOU can help" I was wondering whether you could
maybe compile a short list of tasks that you see as being a priority
when it comes to the FLOSS Manuals content.
Thanks again for all the amazing work you're doing!! :-)
