I've got a brand new high capacity / high speed /dev/null and want to
test it extensively. Since I use it for backup I spend only a
fraction of a minute for the job ;-)).

Uhmm - I never had the idea that Galeon would be out!!
Please include this greates browser I've ever seen!

No - as long as this would stop Galeon from beeing included.

Exactly. People hwo travel from abroad are expected to be this interested
that I guess 99% of them will be able to find the relevant information in
English in a view seconds. Completely other situation for random German
visitor from nearby who would just notice: This damn Debian GNU/Linux
is only documented in English and I can't understand any word. Just get
rid of this wast ...

No. I wanted to say:
   High priority: German documentation
   Even high priority: English documentation where there is no
                       (up to date) German translation
   Lower priority: English documentation which is quite an exact
                       translation of the German text
                       (Instead include Galeon. Or just spare this
                        space perhaps for galeon or even a funy game?
                        Did I mention Galeon?)
   Lowest priority: Other languages.

In my opinion this would fit the needs of people randomly grabbing a
Debian CD. More knowledgeable users will find the relevant stuff

Kind regards
