Don't branch - too much maintenance effort, and it's not like there's
constant updates. We can always do it if someone wants to do a major
rewrite for 2.1/3.0.

Um, dunno what that is, because i have another issue:

3) the build process is not very transparent.
when typing 'make', it should be checked if the pkgs needed to do the
translation are installed, and if not a warning with instructions should
be printed.

right now I'm getting:

	miyu% cd /usr/cvs/htdocs/guide/en/
	miyu% make
	env SGML_CATALOG_FILES= XML_CATALOG_FILES=/usr/pkg/share/xml/catalog /usr/pkg/bin/xsltproc --nonet --catalogs   --param manifest "'HTML.manifest'" --param toc.section.depth "'1'" --param toc.max.depth "'8'" --param generate.section.toc.level "'0'" --param section.autolabel "'1'" --param section.label.includes.component.label "'1'" --param netbsd.url.image.bsddaemon "'../../images/BSD-daemon.jpg'" --param netbsd.url.disclaimer "''" --param html.stylesheet "'/NetBSD.css'" --param "'1'" --param "'1'" --param root.filename "'index'" --param html.ext "'.html'" --param chunk.first.sections "'0'" --param chunk.section.depth "'0'" --param generate.manifest "'1'"  /usr/cvs/htdocs/guide/en/share/default-html-chunk.xsl default-chunk.xml

	miyu% ls -la "/usr/pkg/share/xsl/docbook/html/chunk.xsl
	ls: /usr/pkg/share/xsl/docbook/html/chunk.xsl: No such file or directory

It would be nice to know which pkg to install now...
