my holidays will be from 20.10.10 till 20.11.10
There might be a workshop I have to attend on 3/4 December, but it is 
not yet fixed:
I might be able to find new members, although it would be better, if 
Christian would go, as he is more knowledgeable in such matters :)

There is a DB Wiktionary Mailing List:  

I added to CC William Waites from OKFN and additionaly Sabine Cretella 
from Vox Humanitatis

@Sabine: I just wanted to ping you respective this topic, you will have 
to decide yourself, if you get involved.
It's about finding and collecting open linguistic resources (any kind, 
not just for translation) and tackling legal issues. We are still in an 
early research phase. Below are some links.
