I actually wonder how obsolete doc-debian-fr is.

Agreed, thanks for reporting it.

French uses uppercase for proper noun, which is not the case here. In
English, it's pretty common to use capitalization, but I disagree that
French typography should be twisted in order to match the English one.
I didn't fix it (since we disagree on the accurate fix), and would
welcome other opinions before doing so.
P.-S.: Even if bug tracking can be useful, I'm not sure discussing such
issue in English is the most effective way. Please, consider mailing
email@example.com in French next time (I'm pretty sure there are
lots of similar issues to discuss ;), we even have a bot if you want to
track the issue.
P.-P.-S.: Oooops, I added a spurious “ ;” before closing the last
parenthesis, sorry for the typo (of course it wasn't a smiley ☺).
