Translations for the debian web site maintained by Antoine Martin
This is a automatically generated mail sent to you
because you are the official translator of some pages
in french of the Debian web site.
I send you the diff between the version you translated and
the current version to allow you to update your work.
For more informations, contact your team coordinator, or
the Debian web-masters (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thanks, and sorry for the annoyance.
