OK, las.sgml is now known as sais.sgml (Elzubeir, thanks).

Great.  I talked to Mr. Ayman Negm on IRC (he's the only Arab
Debian Developer (DD for short) - one out of 5,000 developers -
we really need to spruce this number up a bit) about helping
out in this effort.  From our brief talk, things sound very
encouraging although he was not very aware of the project's
goals and aspirations (ie. why have it and do it, etc).  So
if any that are familiar with the 'distros' project are on
IRC and you encounter 'Xsnack' do please fill him in on the
details.  We also need the 'distros' project page to be very
clear and crisp about the goals and plans of the sub-project.

In passing, we really need more people looking to become DDs.
The process is a bit involved, I'm just mentioning it here so
that others (like Mr. A.Medini and M.Sameer, etc) start looking
seriously into it.
