Could you warn him that we're going upload Storable 2.00 to CPAN sometime
within the next week (probably the next couple of days), so that he isn't
caught unawares, and can decide what to do in advance?
(Not that it is much advance warning, I'm afraid, but I only became aware of
his page last night)

It would be great if he could make a translation. I guess the easiest way to
get the Storable docs before it gets to CPAN is from the repository browser:

(unless he's got a copy of one of Jarkko's recent snapshots, which I doubt)

He's a wise man for being careful to put that warning in.
It's good to know that whenever the documentation is updated it's safe to
keep on referring to that page without fear that people will read just the
translation and assume that it is current.
