Thanks for the link. It does look pretty complex for me now (the sort of thing I would have enjoyed very much before becoming ill), and they don't seem to have any notes for Mac OSX 10.4, which is a major update.

The main problem about arch and tla/bazaar is that they work with distributed repositories instead of one central. They solve problems, debian-women does not have. For a central project like debian-women website and www.d.o one central repository is the best, I think. That is why the arch system to choose should have been discussed before just acting.

To OSX and Fink: Fink is sometimes out of date a lot. I do not use it any longer, moved to Darwinports (.org) after installing my new notebook.

But to build the pages to upload them to alioth, you need some more things:

local wml installation
local build of the pages
checking if someone else has uploaded a different version and try to syncronizize all the distributed archive as often as possible. Else it may happen, that one upload juste deletes, what another person has made before.

How it works with the main debie pages (www.debian.org)
- - central repository and central build of the pages.
- - translators have ther checked out working version and can make a local build, for testing purposes, if they want (did that a lot for www.d.o). - - those who have cvs commit access can check in changes directly and others can deliver patches to www.d.o. All this makes sure, that there is only one version of the debian pages on all mirrors after build and mirror update.

As nearly all larger projects, many people are working on, use either CVS or the newer SVN, it makes a lot of sense to learn one of them or both. If you just want to checkout, make changes and deliver patches to someone else, there is not very much to learn.

Using SVN has the advantage, that it works over http, and will pass firewalls, no need to open an additional port.
