I mean I don't have enough time to do both things.

I don't want to do anything particular on the makefiles, as long as you
work on them.

The mailing list allows the translation to be done in team, just like
the French translators always have done. It's slower than working alone,
but results in much more quality.

Do you mean we must not translate the snippets until that's fixed?
I don't know actually, partly because I can't build 'fr-doc' branch
without fixes -- have you intentionally not added GNUmakefiles in
Documentation/po, Documentation/fr and Documentation/fr/user ?
I suppose you're fixing them, so I'm going to be patient :-)

I just translated some entries of the .po to test the scripts. In the
coming days, I'm going to work on fr.po, polish the tutorial and submit
it to the French list.

I'll tell you when the tutorial is ready to be officially released.
