I'm engrossed with many other things, but never mind: I still don't have
time to work on the translations and build system, but at least I have
time to discuss on the lists.  BTW the time you don't spend looking at
ROADMAP, the CG and build scripts and thinking to find the answer of
your questions is spent by me to answer the same questions; your time is
as precious as mine, but I likely won't have time to both discuss such
things and work on the new build system.

I fully agree.

Because .html (and maybe .png) suffixes are stripped in URLs in the
online target, which completely breaks navigation on a local media
(unless you have a properly set up HTTP sever running on your box :-P)

I *cannot* estimate the completion of the new doc build system, except
that it can be anything between 3 weeks and 3 months.  It depends on how
much email I have to keep with translations and the build system, how
much time I have to spend in bureaucratic details for my PhD...

Please also remember 3-4 weeks for translating the website, when it is
ready; therefore I'm not sure it's worth hacking makefiles too much.  I
mean, it's not necessary that translated website builds perfectly for
starting translating it, only having some HTML output is needed for the
translators and us to check the output.
