Yes, I agree. The branch was meant temporarily.

I very strongly prefer .dbk over .xml. XML is very generic
(everything is XML nowadays, right? gnumeric, dia, abiword, ...)
E.g. I have configured my Emacs nxml-mode to automatically use
the DocBook RNG schema for .dbk files. I can accept other
extensions (.docbook or whatever you like, but please not a
generic one like .xml).

OK, I have to check, how to handle this. Currently, it makes the
build process a little bit easier (and more aligned with the
languages, where po is not used on request of the translators)
and it allows translators to easily share their work without
having to merge later. But we can change this, if you prefer.

This happens, if the "architecture" variable is not set during
the make run. I will change the Makefile, that this does not
happen anymore. Sorry for the inconvenience.
