Thanks for the ack :)

Do you have any opinion on my proposed structure for dpn translations?
Which do you prefer?

dpn/template.wml dpn/current.wml dpn/template.XX.wml dpn/current.XX.wml

dpn/template.XX.wml dpn/current.XX.wml

dpn/template.wml dpn/current.wml dpn/XX/template.wml dpn/XX/current.wml

They will need webwml anyway to get the translation published, putting
it in the publicity repository just introduces more duplication.

Will try to do that, will focus on auditing the repository contents
first though. For example I found one zh_CN translation that is not
yet in webwml, so I need to manually check everything before removing
old translations.

I also note that we have a bunch of content duplicated on the wiki:
