Here is info on situation of DDP CVS:
$ cvs up
| cvs server: Updating .
| cvs server: Updating articles
| cvs server: Updating articles/counting-potatoes
| cvs server: Updating articles/debian-international
| cvs server: Updating articles/debian-presentation
| cvs server: Updating articles/package-interfaces
| cvs server: Updating manuals.sgml
| cvs server: Updating manuals.sgml/apt-howto

| P manuals.sgml/apt-howto/Makefile

| P manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.en.sgml
| cvs update: checksum failure after patch to manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.en.sgml; will refetch

| cvs update: checksum failure after patch to manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.es.sgml; will refetch
| P manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.it.sgml
| cvs [server aborted]: unexpected '\xffffffab' reading revision number in RCS file /cvs/debian-doc/ddp/manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.ja.sgml,v
| cvs client: refetching unpatchable files
| U manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.en.sgml
| U manuals.sgml/apt-howto/apt-howto.es.sgml

It seems there is problem with RCS file of

Please note this original file apt-howto.ja.sgml uses ja_JP.eucJP
encoding.  Editing file under UTF-8 locale editor will destroy file
contents.  You need to use dumb 8 bit clean editor like mcedit (from mc)
preferably under C locale.
