Looks mostly fine. Just some nits:

- lang-targets.xml is autogenerated, you don't need to let it be reviewed ;)
- please comment out the <man> part in fr.xml, currently there's no deployment
of non-english man pages. (If someone knows, how this is done properly please
speak up :)
- In the actual content files, please note the revision, *they are refering
to* (like the other translations do). Like

<!-- English Revision: xyz -->

instead of the current $Revision$ stuff. The revision of the translation is
not of interest, but if you have the English revision noted in the document,
the automatic checker can determine if it's outdated (thatsway the English
documents are the only ones that contain $Revision$, which is expanded by

There are two CVS branches (the same as for the code). HEAD is httpd-2.1 and
APACHE_2_0_BRANCH is httpd-2.0. The docs are in wide parts the same but in
other parts they differ much as well.

Essentially there are two complete doc trees, one for each branch.

Hmm. Did this answer your question somehow?

ah, see above :). I hope, it does explain it.

Your decision. I'm recommending 4 spaces and avoiding tabs.

Thank you both for the stuff!
