The French translation is up-to-date but I noticed that the indentation
of many lines sucks. Translators, could you please test these with
Subversion 1.5? Just start svn help <subcommand> ...

I'm sure the messages are properly translated (I don't understand
French) but the usage of spaces such as in help messages needs an
improvement!

It should look properly:

I fixed this for all translations by reusing the existing (incomplete)
translation. (There is a minor Makefile problem, the updated
translations are not always freshly installed with "make install".
It's probably the 1 second resolution of make which requires a "sleep 1"
somewhere. So it may be necessary to copy it manually if you do not use
a clean working copy.)

There is still a change to improve translations for the 1.5 release. A
new release candidate is planned for this evening (-07 timezone).

PS: Nori, your Japanese translation is also not in sync with trunk.
The file TRANSLATING contains instructions for merging from trunk to
1.5.x (never used it in the past, I worked with msgmerge which will
fail for complex tasks).
