    Here is my first contribution to the open-source world, and first 
meaningful chunk of emacs-lisp! :-)

Thanks for contributing to Emacs -- but please don't refer to our
community with the term "open-source".  That is an amoral approach to
the issue, and we disagree with it.  What we do is called "free software".

(Your name looks French; in French it is called « logiciel libre ».)

Google translation suffers from a problem: it is Software as a
Service.  I'm writing an article about why that is a bad thing for
users' freedom.
