Hi Till,
Sorry for the delay :-/

It's never too late :-) (it's never too late either for me to work on it
again :-P)

No, paths are relative to Documentation/; this list mentions original
files, not translated ones.

No, just skim through this file and you'll see some stuff to translate.
I should add PO file loading support in Texi2html through a Perl library
this summer; after that, it will be easy to move these translations to
the doc PO.

No, this means you should look for stuff to translate after a comment
line name "TRANSLATIONS".

Thanks, fixed in my working tree. Files not to be translated are not

I hope I've caught all of them, but it's almost always easier to find
other's typos and bad wording than yours, so please report them next

Fixed on my working tree.

I'm sorry I have not pushed those fixes, but as you can see from Git
history, I'm preparing translation of node names in Texinfo sources,
which will be the subject of another email, and I've been silly enough
to mix the fixes for the typos you reported with changes related to
nodes translation.
