They are yours to maintain. I just added a directory for arm too.

add one what? If you create a new mail list, call it debian-webmaster
and make it open subscription.

I like the current scheme of keeping the .html separate as there is much less
clutter. Of course, I'll be much more amenable to change if someone else is
doing the work. :)
If someone knows how to have make only try to build a target if the source
exists, then I'd go for each subdir having its own Makefile. Under the
current system translators only need to edit the main Makefile. We want
to minimize the amount of work that translators need to do.
