Yes, I know. And I thought it was not a good idea to not even try to tackle it and I still think it is not a good idea: what good is a solution that ignores one of the fundamental design decisions.

Now that this stuff has been postponed we may at least try to solve I18N.

I will not do i18n for these TIPs. If somebody does have the spare time and energy (Dirk?) please go ahead!

My solution is to add a field to the same table that holds title or name. The effort for this should be near-zero for the person that adds the other fields.

However there doesn't seem to be much interest in discussing i18n, we don't have a solution yet, so why discuss who will do it?

Dirk, I totally agree this is important. I just think that process-wise, Timo only agreed to do the first step. Later steps should probably go through the same process (i.e. TIP etc)

I18N is very important -- it's part of what makes OpenACS so strong. But you're right, nobody is really stepping forward to do it.
