I suggest emailing him to contact the WordPress Support Forums.  I'd
probably delete the request.

I haven't seen a response to my email either, was just hoping someone could
install a Spanish WordPress.  I notice there's a second request also.

I'd still install the "latest stable" release available at
http://wordpress.org/download/ so that the people in the Support Forums
always know what version we are installing--bugs or not.

And of course by now you know your email are getting to the list.  Regards.
