I do not understand exactly what are you tring to tell us but ... can
you provide URL of "french pages". Is the translation document in SGML
or only in HTML. Is the author updating the document with exact version
control in mind? .... Who is the author or his e-mail address, anyway?
These are going to be factors for us to think how to deal with this
document in the most effective way.
I think if it is well done translation in SGML with version control, it
may be a good "informative" document to be added to DDP or some other
part of Debian.
