I'm not care my project history, so I'll only merge the latest.

We maintain the svnbook project since 2007, but we have frustrate for best
way to do this. We try several method, now we feel po4a is the right way.

Because google code can not give me a permanence name for the latest
downloads, I'm very interested in move the downloads to the server, but I don't known how to do this.

We require the edge version po4a, fop for pdf format, docbook-xsl for
epub format.

Thanks, but could you use songdongsheng at as subversion repo. ?

As I said, since 2007, we maintain it in i18n-zh for research new way. We
are tired for sync source with our translation, It's odious and difficult.
