This looks great, not that I can read French, but I appreciate the
work to translate it.

We just standardized our texinfo documentation to use a consistent
format so the files don't look like a mis-mash from different

I took a quick look through the patch and some of the texinfo @XXX{}
and quoting doesn't match. I'm guessing the translation was started
before we standardized the texinfo format.

Could you go through and update the patch? You may want to take a look
at some of the diffs to the handbook to see what was changed since
you grabbed a copy of it and apply the changes to this document.

Here's the new standard, which are also listed in doc/README, which
were derived from


1) Use `` and '' for quoting any text. Do not use a single ' or a
   single ".
2) When quoting single characters, such as discussing the output from
   an svn merge or svn update, use @samp{}.
3) Use @samp{} for any commands to run on the command line. Do not use
   @command{}, this is for the program itself. So use @samp{ls -l},
   but refer to ls as @command{ls}. For svn, svnadmin, svnlook
   subcommands, use @samp{}, so to refer to svnlook's youngest
   subcommand, use @samp{youngest}.
4) Use @option{} for command line options to programs that are not
   listed with the program. So @samp{ls -l}, but refer to -l as
5) Use @uref{} for URLs that anybody on the Internet can access.
   These are converted to real links in HTML pages, while @url{}'s are
   not. Use @url{} for sample http:// or file:// URLs. For any
   @uref{} URLs that refer to a site's home page or a directory, place
   a / at the end of the URL. This saves a redirect and loads the
   page faster.
6) Svn keywords, i.e. svn:ignore, should be in @samp{}.

A couple of other things:

1) Also, I see that the diff includes several new files: ./bar.c, ./README,
   ./stuff/fish.c, ./stuff/things/bloo.h that look like parts of French

2) Take the svn:eol-style properties off the new files.
