Indeed. I was talking to someone over the weekend that pointed out a few
of the advantages of becoming a "Registered society" in Ireland. One of
them would be that people interested in translating free software's
locales into Gaelic would be able to apply for a government grant to do
so - it would pay for a tape drive for Lugh, and more hardware if needed,
and even some of the time of the translators, etc.
One of the things we'll have to discuss at the next General Meeting.
