steps (a) to (c) are done under webwml/english/.
When proposing this transition, I did not realize that current links to PO
files and Debconf templates would be broken due to adoption of a pool
In order to fix this problem, I would now prefer to exchange (d) and (e),
i.e. build English files ASAP, and committed files accordingly.
So English files will be installed during next build.
All international/Makefile have been synced with English, except for
danish french german korean swedish
directories, because these languages must first migrate their l10n
directory to the new scheme (which is quite easy, I did it for French).
Translators of these languages, I will let this work into your hands,
and when this is done, remember to add l10n again into international/Makefile.
Last, if build runs fine, someone should remove old files to prevent
problems with content negociation:
rm po-* templates-* team-* l10n* i18n*
and also remove outdated index files.
Not sure I will have time (and rights) to do it myself.
