I've slightly reworked the beginning of the page

Do we really want to maintain translations of the website ? I don't
think it's that important for such a technical website.

I've added a note about the delay before getting access on
svn.debian.org. It would really be great if newcomers to the team could
add more info to this page.

I've took the initiative to rename svn-build.en to subversion.en, merge
into it the "importing a package" part of create.en, and remove
create.en (the CDBS part is already in ruby-pkg-tools/cdbs.en)

still to do

yup. But I have added a link in the menu. The top of the page is clear
enough to avoid confusion.

I don't think so. Why so ? It just needs to be updated as soon as
the rubygems package hits unstable.

The "Use setup.rb" section still needs to be written. If somebody want
to work it, feel free. I've also added the page to the menu.

I've moved it to the bottom of the page, and added a note about it only
being used for packages not supporting watch files.

done. I also moved sources.en from 10 to 50 to reflect the new order.

I mentionned the fact that the sources file should only be used for
packages where watch files are not a solution.
I also added a note about the missing comma problem to
