	All the reports of this kind are in www.gnu.org/fsfe/fr/news/
or france.fsfeurope.org/news/, therefore they are in the
savannah.gnu.org/projects/fsfe and savannah.gnu.org/projects/www since
they both cover this part of the www.gnu.org CVS tree. They are
syndicated using an RSS file that is published on various news
channels. The idea is to also syndicate them in
www.fsfeurope.org/news/ as soon as someone takes some time to build
this directory.

	Olivier Berger has been working on the news channel this week.
I added a task reminder for the annual report. What's the date of publication ?
When should the summary be ready ?

	So it would be MO for short, right ?-)

	RMS noticed this and I already fixed it on the online version.

	I fixed this too.

	I replaced the figures with your estimations.

	Fixed, forgot mailto:.

	Barely the XSLT/XHTML as every page on *.fsfeurope.org + lynx
--dump does the job.
