143<p>Currently, the main documentation page is <cite>main/en/docs.xml</cite>. A better

146seperate index pages for each language (<cite>doc/${LANGUAGE}/index.xml</cite>).</p>
147<p>The documentation indexes should mention the other indexes (for other
148languages), but shouldn't have seperate links for each language per

150<p>The localization page resides in <cite>main/${COUNTRYCODE}/index.xml</cite>. This
151page, which is formatted the same way as the whole Gentoo website,

179- Translators can only touch files in `doc/${LANGUAGE}` and
180 `main/${LANGUAGE}`.
181
182- The localized pages, which are rather static (since they only
183 contain a list of community sites), are maintained by a
184 single group for all countrycodes, unless the localization
185 pages also contain newsitems, in which case seperate groups
186 for each country can exist.
