Bug#659066: www.debian.org: [fr] inconsistent capitalization of 'Développeurs', 'Contrat social' and 'Comité technique' in the Social Contract

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal
Usertags: pca.it-l10n

Hi there!

Cc:ing the debian-l10n-french@ mailing list for comments and
doc-debian-fr@p.d.o because the bug is in this package.

While reading the French version [1] of the Social Contract for my talk
tomorrow at the Open Source Now 2012 [2], I discovered that there is an
inconsistency in the capitalization of the first letter of the word
'Développeurs': at §2.1 and §4.1 it is uppercase, while every other
times it is lowercase.  Similarly for 'Contrat social' at § and
'Comité technique' at §6.

[1] <http://www.debian.org/devel/constitution.fr.html>
[2] <http://www.debian.org/events/2012/0207-opensourcenow>

Given how English terms have been translated (always with a lowercase
first letter), I would say that the use at §2.1, §4.1, § and §6
is wrong.

However, IMHO we should keep these words as in the English version,
i.e. with a uppercase first letter.  This is the situation in all the
other languages but Danish and Swedish.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
