Some stuff translated into brazilian portuguese

Hi friends of netbsd-docs,

 At http://www.geocities.com/netbsdbrasil we are
(gradually) saving some netbsd documentation
translated into brazilian portuguese or written from
scratch in the same language.

Thanks for letting us know -- great to see more resources for NetBSD in
Brazilian Portuguese!  I was wondering, do you coordinate with the
people from Projeto NetBSD-BR (http://www.netbsd.com.br/)?  It would be
too bad if you duplicated your efforts and combining them would make for
a great one-spot access point for all brazilian portuguese users.

Also, you may want to talk to the people from http://www.netbsd-pt.org/.
I understand that this is not Brazilian Portuguese, but maybe there are
some areas where your efforts overlap or can help each other?

Finally, if you are a separate group, shall we add you to
http://www.netbsd.org/gallery/groups.html ?

Thanks,
-Jan

Re: Some stuff translated into brazilian portuguese

 We think you are right about a possible duplication
of efforts. Notwithstanding, it can't be seen, at
least for the moment, any regular work of translation
being done by NetBSD-BR members. Maybe the main goal
of that so active group isn't the translation of
netbsd documents into brazilian portuguese but to
improve and stimulate the communication among netbsd
users. Of course cooperation should produce better and
bigger results. One important task is the updating of
the brazilian version of the Guide.
   Brazilian portuguese is for the time being a little
bit different from that one spoken and written in
Portugal. For example, the word "file" in Brazil is
"arquivo" and in Portugal "ficheiro". Both words have
the same meaning in both countries but they show a
daily use of different lexical maps (and different
"maps" of verb conjugation, etc.). Of course we all
can understand each other without (much) translation
:). The mentioned differences, neverthless, shouldn't
prevent us from cooperation and the search for a
common environment of work inside the NetBSD Project.
 Finally, it would be very kind of you to insert our
web address at the group's gallery. Telling the truth,
we are not calling ourselves a group properly but an
initiative whose focus is the translation and the
development of NetBSD documentation in brazilian
portuguese.
 Thanks.

alpha/INSTALL.html still contains changes from 1.5

Hello,

ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-2.0/alpha/INSTALL.html#alpha%20specific
lists the changes to the alpha port between 1.5 and 1.6, instead of
between 1.6 and 2.0 ...

Grammatical improvements to the Guide's CCD chapter


I've attached a patch that corrects one factual error and a number of
grammatical issues/typos in the CCD chapter of the guide.  I haven't
included a patch against chap-ccd.html as I couldn't work out where that
came from in time - pointers for that appreciated.

Cheers,

Ceri
