Is there any guide on how one should translate the release notes/beats?
If not, could someone please write the steps one should follow?
I know the situation with Beats, moin-to-xml export and relevant stuff
are experimental, probably temporary and fragile, but there *should* be
a way for translators to have more than some days to translate the
14.000-long release notes text.
