Dear Friends!

Niklas set up a *RTL test wiki* at http://jadesukka.homelinux.org:8180/golem/ .
The content language is / should be Yiddish. Namespaces are translated already
but tags ar not the ones from [[yi:Special:Allmessages]].

Trough "MediaWiki:SiteNotice" many usefull *bilingual* links are available. Hope
to provide more help in English.

Please take a look at items described at
http://jadesukka.homelinux.org:8180/golem/Feedback . Would be happy if you can
provide some help making correspondence to known bugs and reporting new.
