I'd like to contribute to VBox. That's why I've a question, then I'd
like to know if you're interested by what I want to do, and how I can
get the source code (at least this of the User Manual) for the vbox not

1. Now Sun is bought by Oracle, will vbox go on being developped as it
was until now? I feel yes as I installed last Debian update but I prefer
to ask.

2. If yes, would you be interested in a translation into French of the
software? I'd like to translate the User Manual and the software because
I think this software is among the best in its field, but a French
friend needs my help to use it as he doesn't speak English. I guess a
lot of users are in this case. But to do this I need source code of
both, and I'd rather ordinary release because OSE doesn't have some
features such as USB.

Can vbox help me doing this? Does this project interests you? How can I
have such source code (for the software code, I'd need explanations to
know where are messages to translate; for manual, less problematic)? I'm
ready to dialogue in private with someone to deal with this question.
Translating OSE would be a good point of starting, but since it's
limitated, it would be frustrating.

Thanks for your answer
