I was certainly unaware of this translation.  I knew that a Japanese 
publisher had printed a book based on the Docbook XML sources we wrote, 
but didn't realize that someone had undertaken an open-source, digital 

Tez:  While I can't read a lick of Japanese, it's fantastic that you've 
undertaken a translation of the Version Control with Subversion text (as 
well as several other Subversion-related texts, anti-FUD documents, 
etc.).  Would you be willing to move your translation sources into the 
svnbook Subversion repository and allow us to host your translation at 
svnbook.com?  I would really love to include your work in our tree.  As 
an alternative -- if you don't want to make such a move -- would you be 
willing to create and maintain an index.jp.html file for the svnbook.org 
website that linked to your subversion.bluegate.org-published translation?
