To gather feedbacks widely, would it better to translate into core
langs (means Es, Fr, Ja and Zh following a recent agreement on
translation subcom) before the Board discuss it? Or not, currently I'
m not sure - most of people who are interested in the Foundation
affects not only such active users but all who access the website.
As for particular langs, I assume Ja version will be necessary to
gather JA folks, or not - even with JA translated version, no feedback
will come out from them. Or not. I have no sure predictions on those
people, confess I.

I'd like to know possibilities on each langs mentioned on the above.
Other langs' cases are also appreciate, specially suggestion like "you
forgot XXX and why you shouldn't have missed it".
