2. News in The LDP world

* Getting ready for LSM

Jean-Philippe Guérard let us know that members of the team will be attending the 5th Libre Software Meeting from 6 to 10 July. He also hopes that this will be an occasion to strengthen the relationship with TLDP and to replace the dead project with Traduc, the currently active French translation effort.

* New mirror sites

This is like the baby-boom, but with Linux now. The whole of Texas is apparently running Linux now, and Canada is on their heels:

+ http:// set up by Eduardo Valdes in Toronto, Canada;

+ Johnny Hughes is the maintainer for this mirror in Corpus Christi, Texas;

+ also in Texas, in Dallas, by Timothy Folks.
