I was looking at my Apache log to tell what to translate first. Now I
feel that complete and consistent html documentation is not something
very often referred from Bugzilla UI. But pages explaining bug
lifecycle (bugwritinghelp.html, confirmhelp.html, bug_status.html)
are frequent fliers.
BTW, at bug 182975 I was told that help pages are to be templatised.
Given that documentation is generated from SGML anyway, why not
convert it into templates at build time? Advantages:
o Multilanguage environment made easy;
o Ability to refer to actual site environment (known to TT);
o Placement and access control issues (mentioned by David
at thread start) go away.
