Yes. The 1.0 version of the book was commissioned by, and published by,
O'Reilly. "Version Control with Subversion" isn't just a digital document,
in the United States, Germany, France (and maybe others I don't know about),
you can pick it up in hardcopy form on the shelves of a bookseller.

I'm not sure what you're asking regarding "which form". Your translation is
expected not to change the book's layout or format, to work directly against
the Docbook XML sources like all the other translations, to maintain
paragraph-for-paragraph, section-for-section parity with the English
translation on which your efforts are based. Are you asking something else?

I agree wholly. And if you hold off for just a couple of weeks, that next
stable version (1.2) will be completed.

Let me know if you want to base off of 1.1, or wait the couple of weeks
until 1.2 is ready. We don't use branches, per se. What we'll do is:
svn copy http://.../tags/en-1.2-final/src/en \
-m "Create IT translation with EN 1.2 as the baseline"

Eric Huelsmann: should we create l10n-it at subversion.tigris.org for this?

This is expected. Translation teams are encouraged to expand their
index.it.html page with additional information relevant to their translation
such as contact information, the status of the translation work, etc.

See above. I just committed changes to most of the index.*.html files in
the website providing a region for translation teams to tell what they wanna
tell on their sites. Feel free to use that region to promote your team.
