Hi Tom, all,

Hi :) The Faqs on the wiki are nearly complete.

Thanks for your announcement, we still have some work on it, but with
the help of Clayton now, I'm sure we will have some speed :)

The Base one was completed so long ago that it might need some
revisions to it now.  It's not always possible to avoid using version
numbers even though using version numbers quickly dates a page.  Some
of the General and Writer sections might also need a bit of revising
but all the rest is very fresh and new.

The FAQ is maintained on a daily basis by the French team, so the items
should be up to date, those which are obsolete have been put in remarks.

Sophie, from the French Team (i think team leader (as well as being
one of the top people in the international translators team and a
founder member of TDF as a whole)),

hum, I'm leading nothing, only me I guess ;)

 has been working hard over the
last couple of weeks/months to translate the Faq from the French
original (i think mostly written by our Alex Thurgood if i remember
correctly).  Other people have also put in some hard work but it was
the sustained efforts of just a few people that has really driven
this through, as is often the case.

To give you some history, this FAQ has been began by the French group
over 14 years ago at the StarOffice time...

So, hopefully the Faq retains a little flavour of French.  It might
need smoothing out into the type of English you might hear in common
usage (please no "Yo"s tho!) .  It's likely to be excellent as is
though and a hint of Frenchness is occasionally aspired to in other
places in order to sound more exotic and posh.

Yes, it's a wiki, so don't hesitate to put your hands on if you see
something wrong, this is a tool for all of us.

Anyway, the job is done for Writer, Calc and Base so it might help us
answer questions by giving us a repository of easy links to back-up
our assertions. Good luck all and happy skim-reading! :) Regards from
 Tom :)

Calc still needs some love, a lot of items are missing, that I'll take
care during the next months. Clayton is currently working on Impress
when he has time. Any help is appreciated, most of the screen shots in
Writer FAQ are still in French for example.

Kind regards
