[PATCH] French translation of the book

From: Francois Beausoleil <fbos_at_users.sourceforge.net>
Date: 2003-04-24 19:29:13 CEST

Hello guys !

Well, I started working on the French translation of the book. Like I
said earlier, I created a new folder where the French book could live.
Now, we need to do a simple test. Can a Linux user check the
doc/book/book/translations/french/ch01.xml file and see if the accented
characters are correct ? This should be the first step in finding
whether or not we can interoperate.

Thanks !

Created folders, copied files and set some properties:
cd doc/book/book
svn mkdir translations
svn mkdir translations/french
svn cp *.xml translations/french
svn cp *.css translations/french
svn cp images translations/french
cd translations/french
svn propset translation:last-updated-revision 5719 .
svn propset translation:help "last-updated-revision: Use the revision
number in this property to find what changes have occured in the English
version of the book that should be reflected in the French version. Use
svn diff --non-recursive --revision
[translation:last-updated-revision]:HEAD doc/book/book to get the actual
changes." .
