migla writes: Debian developer and author of Cahier de l’Admin Debian — "The Debian Administrator's Handbook" in French, announced campaigns for crowd-funding the translation and liberation of the book. The translation is estimated to require six person-months, for which € 15K (about $20K) of donations are being solicited. The price-tag for the immaterial property of the publisher is set to € 25K (approaching $35K). Is it worth it?

    I accidentally the name RaphaÃl Hertzog from the summary.

    Also the part of the centence where I say "in French" is ambiguous at best, possibly grammatically incorrect. Maybe just scratch "in French" and insert ",RaphaÃl Hertzog" in it's place?
