Why don't you set up refcard as an Alioth project, managed by CVS? We
could do something (albeit simplified, as this is not a vast set of
pages) similar to webwml for Debian's web site translations. And the
'refcard' Alioth project could handle more than just this reference
card - Many, more specialized reference cards for Debian's many
subsystems and even packages - In effect, a refbook :) What do you

Well, back to the webwml point... Translations can mention to which
CVS revision of the original (usually in English) they will point. A
tracker can even be set up, such as
