The exact destination of the G1G1 program is not set in stone. But it seems
likely that we will be going to the UK at some point. It's not my personal
opinion that the manual is in a good location to start being translated into
en_GB. I would rather an english speaker continue to improve the manual
itself for the time being. In time I think that it would be great to have
an en_GB, even if it were one volunteer maintaining it. That being said, I
don't know how that much about FM translation tools yet.
In IRC my strong opinion was that there should be a translation of the Sugar
Software into en_GB, which would involve talking to Sayamindu and the
[Translation] list, not the Library list.

I believe that Adam Hyde controls that for the manuals at FM. And Sayamindu
here at OLPC would set you up with a translation instance of en_GB for the
software. Both cc'd here.

git isn't required for either translation service.
