Indeed. I am glad to be one of the many users of rockbox and i want to contribute, but its not as easy as it could be. One thing that i and probably others would like to contribute on is to transelate the rockbox page to make it more reachable for everyone. I myself would be delighted to help in a such way. Would this be possible to do?Mhv. Daniel G Brenden
