The question remains, the one that made me ask in this list, is what can be done to increase the number of manual pages translated, and to keep them updated?
manual pages are specific to each application. I know only of kernel manual pages held by the LDP (http://tldp.org/manpages/man.html).
Some time ago There where a discussion on LDP mailing about hosting the Debian man pages, I will investigate to know if they are somewhere here.
It will be interesting.
As LDP coordinator I'm ready to host a centralized man page repository. Translating these things for each distro is ridiculous :-)
Obviously! And contacting each upstream project is troublesome. There is a translation project for many of the base gnu applications, and although it doesn't seem very buoyant, it produces more results than man pages (I mean they don't translate man pages, and I don't know of an equivalent project that does). There is need for more translators, but that is not the only problem.
