I've just started experimenting with the tools. I'm getting an error
message when trying to build the documentation (both with the Italian
translation and the English original, error message added at the end of
this message). I was following the quick start documentation maybe I'm
missing something.

Apart from that, I wanted to create a page on wiki.FreeBSD.org to start
coordinating things and give interested people some place to start from.

Looks like we will also need some central repository for partial work to
be shared for collaboration and review. Would you agree that forking
freebsd-doc repo on github and creating a branch from a random revision
(to get a stable target to start with) would be the easiest way to get
started without needing further infrastructure?

As far as I have understood documentation the suggested way to start
translating is to generate the po file and translate with poedit, am I

Sorry for the maybe obvious questions, I'm trying to leverage existing

blank page!!
