that into our new system.

Actually, that’s what i’m looking for on the new accounts system. I
found out how to do it.

In fact, its in two repositories. One that holds all of what the user
sees "content-server"[3], and another the texts in various languages
"content-server-l10n"[4].

Its possible.

That’s why i’m asking for text =)

Welcome email + confirm link source: [0], text [1]
Welcome page after confirm link source: [2] (what’s between {{#signUp}})

NOTE: I can just skip localization (l10n) for now by not using anything
with {{#mustach}} until we work on that later.
