Hi Martin, thanks for this information.
I'll try to do some work on the website when I've free time, even if
i'm not very familiarised with SVN.
Marco, I agree with you about localization of the website, but i'm not
when you speak about CMS. Generally I prefer to develop myself than a
CMS. Most of them are too complex for what you really need. Then when
you've develop the main site you can add easily RSS, forum, etc etc.
and use other downloaded scripts.
I am able translate the website in French and a few in German.
