The proposal with http://www.XX.linuxdoc.org/YY/ will allow a very
flexible setup where each site can decide to add or remove certain
languages from the site based on demand.
This way http://www.linuxdoc.org/index.html can point to /nl/index.html
for the Dutch stuff. And any site mirroring from www.linuxdoc.org will
have the same local reference. Making mirroring quite easy. I guess
Belgium and South Africa are the two most likely site to mirror it.
And the other way around it's likely that we may add Germand and French to
the Dutch server. But it could very well be that there is demand for the
Turkish pages as well.
