Dear Jens,

Thank you for submitting these translations. As you know, these pages
are to be served via content negotiation and are therefore not part of
the usual translation policy.

Several issues apply to hosting documents via content negotiation, one
of them being that the may seem like WAI resources which are created
within WGs rather than translations submitted by volunteers.

However, we have been working on a translation policy to host such
documents and hope to finalize it soon so that we can accept such
translations. Thank you for your understanding and looking forward to
publishing these documents in the near future.

Regards,
  Shadi

Sorry for cross-posting.

Once again: About 13 months ago (yes, it's been in pale 2003) Roberto
[1,2]
and me [3] (references include all relevant information) translated all
WAI
conformance pages into Italian and German, and nothing happened yet,
they
still ain't in use.

I meanwhile find it somewhat frustrating how this voluntary work is
treated
(thanks to Ivan that this is not the usual way translations are
handled). A
notification would be the least if the W3C or any WG dismisses the
translations.


Happy new year,
 Jens.
