Hello Micheal,

In my point of view, it sounds resonable.

Am I correct that "chased" English versions would "marked" by "tags"
(e.g. tags/1.4/en, tags/1.5/en)?

Are you going to correct typos or errors in "released" version of the book
(e.g. for "tags/1.4/en") in "bugfix" branches (e.g. branch/1.4/en)?
Be Happy!!!
