This manual is a mix of different technologies.

xml-docbook - for the manual structure and HTML/PDF conversion
xml2po      - for the internationalization of the doc
make (via autoconf/automake) - for the test/updated of the po files/compilation

Please note that this approach could be seen as trying to kill mosquitos
with a bazooka for any doc less than 100 pages... 

There could be many other (easier) way to the same. 

See google for markdown for an example, or you can consider using a wiki
(like mediawiki) with an pdf/epub plugin.

Your mileage may vary.
