Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

The page


is in English, but if I follow the "Table of Contents" links, I get
pages in French[*]. There is no way to stay on the English pages.
IMHO, all link URL's should contain language information, e.g. the


URL in the link should be replaced by


and each page should allow one to switch the language, via HTML
contents (as this can already be done on the index page) and/or
via <link rel="alternate" .../>.

Another related problem is that explicit French pages like


contains a link "Sommaire" to


which is in English. Ditto, the URL should be:


[*] probably because my web browser is configured to ask French by
default, but this is a general choice, and web pages should have a
way to choose other available languages.

Hi Vincent,

indeed, it is unlikely that links from a "foo.fr.html" page will be corrected
to point to "bar.fr.html" page instead of "bar.html" in the Developers
Reference web pages.  I am therefore closing that bug.
