I thought propose you that before, and I agree. Don't worry.

Ok, I will try in some moment.

Well, I'm an advocate of the i18n but IMHO solve mistakes has more priority. 
But, by now we don't have a deadline.

For example, the document I have filled has:

Task: Robotics
Description: Debian Robotics packages
 This metapackage will install Debian Science packages related to Robotics.


With this file you generate a left column with a summary (and some explanation 
of the debian-med project ;-) ) and a right column with a list of packages 
separated by:

Green: The project is available as an official Debian package
Yellow: The project is available as an inofficial Debian package
Red: The project is not (yet) available as a Debian package

If I would like to add some text before each category, or a paragraph, or 
whatever. Should I to add some tag to separate it?

Ok, I will try. I would prefer to have one, but we need people ...

ok, I understand that I can add in a flat schema a list of sub task, taking in 
mind that at least a minimun of packages is needed. So, I could have:


however, I would like to have some root page with links to this sub-tasks.

Your welcome, thanks to you for insist.
