Um, I don't speak any language but English.  Well, American, actually.
However, I can try to coordinate.  As we discussed before, the 
infrastructure for multi-lingual documentation isn't really there in
debiandoc-sgml.

Can anyone here on the debian-doc help here?

Hmm.  I suggest a system similar to what Oliver uses to keep the
DDP pages.  I think you use a similar thing for www.debian.org;
namely, a CVS checked out directory, nightly updated, 'make install-www'
run, which installs the HTML?

We'd have to be careful to only commit changes that don't break the 
build, but that would be the most automated way....

Let me know what you decide and I can hack on the Makefile
in the documentation subdir.
