you should subscribe koha-devel mailing list from sourceforge, then 
present yourself and tell us what's your sf id. Then pate will add you 
to the dev list, and you will be empowered with cvs access to commit nl 

>-Can you include me on your page with world-wide support organisations?
ok, we will do it when the 2.0 version in NL will be launched i propose.

>(If this has been said a zilion times I am sorry).
We choose to use a templating system, for at least 2 reasons :
* this solves the problem of page encoding for "non 8859-1" languages.
* we can define theme, and have differents looks for a single language.

However, for very common terms, it's written somewhere in our plans to 
create a specific table to have a consistent translation.
