I might repeat myself. But I do not think the problem is the extraction
of the documents, but how to make it available. Maintainers are normaly
intirested in beeing translated and should be connected to the software
upstream who are also often intrested in having more things translated.
If there was an easy way to add things to be translated, I really think
much will be supplied. And with easy I mean something a maintainer
not done any localisation or translation himself can understand and use.

I don't know if cvs is very well fitted fo that. If you start with
branches it will loose it's transparency. And if you have only one
version you will always run after the version in unstable, and loose
the possibility to prepare translations before a package is uploaded.
