I've also to say the same: Good Lord.
There are missing contributions on this page. In the translation
efforts section, where's Brazilian Portuguese???? We have _lots_ of
documentation translated and the were listed on the prior LDP
site... Our address is http://ldp-br.conectiva.com.br.
The responsible are: Jorge Godoy <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Marcia Gawlak <email@example.com>
Ricardo Guimarães <firstname.lastname@example.org>

For a "Volunteers List", the "Volunteers" themselves are very
insignificant... It would be better a general page without names, just
greeting volunteers and explaining what to do to be a volunteer. And
there should be a page listing volunteers name's and their
contribution to the LDP Project.
