tools for helping translation of documentation

The po4a (po for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and more interestingly, the maintenance of translations) using gettext tools on areas where they were not expected like documentation.

This package contains the main libraries of po4a, and the following sub-modules:

  - Dia: uncompressed Dia diagrams.
  - Ini: the INI format
  - KernelHelp: Help messages of each kernel compilation option.
  - LaTeX: generic TeX or LaTeX format.
  - Man: either roff or mdoc format.
  - Pod: Perl documentation format.
  - Sgml: either debiandoc or docbook DTD.
  - Texinfo: the info page format.
  - XML: very configurable (preconfigured for docbook, Xhtml, Guide, Wml).
