Great! I committed it and added a reference to Tamil in
Please note that I could build the HTML file but it was completely
unreadable for me. So check the result once it is online (in 4 hours).
You should try to limit line lengths in text documents! 800 characters
per line are really to much! How do you want to read CVS diffs?
Read http://www.debian.org/devel/website/htmlediting for details.
Please send an updated patch which *only* address this and maybe further
patches for typo corrections ...

You could follow http://people.debian.org/~joey/misc/webwml.html for
DDP too but I suggest you continue sending patches for now. Patches are
really fast committed and we could also perform some additional tests
(does it build, ...).
PS: Note that many DDP documents are no longer maintained and
partely outdated. It is probably wrong trying to translate everything.
PS2: You did not find any errors in the English document? Not a single
typo, wrong content, ...?
