Spanish translation for the Slackbook. I was wondering if he was 
planning on uploading his translation to the site or if he would rather 
have me do it (and update it at the same time). His site isn't very 
clear on what license his translation is under, so I just wanted to make 
sure I can even copy it over the SlackDocs Wiki at all.

Hola Gerardo,

I'm the one that's in charge of the slackware-es.com site which in 
itself is a translation of the slackware.com site. I have published the 
Spanish version of the book there under this URL 
http://slackware-es.com/slackbook/ , where you'll see that the 
translation was made by "Nestor Alonzo", a guy who seems to have 
vanished from the face of the Earth. Maybe that translation's license is 
the same one as the English book.

I've been waiting Alan to finish the new version (and maybe even putting 
some pressure over him via emails) in order to start a translation of 
the new book, under the same license as the book itself.

If you wish, we can have the Spanish translation published on my site as 
I was planning to do a from scratch translation as soon as the new book 
was released.

best regards,
