Hi Geert, and once again, thank you for your mighty translation effort :)

Piotr answered part of this in a separate reply, but missed something 
too, so this is the complete guide to building the f13 docs (at the 
moment, only the Release Notes are available)


1. check out the book from source. In this case:

git clone git://

2. change into the book directory. In this case:

cd release-notes

3. create a local git branch that tracks the remote f13 branch, and 
switch to the new local branch:

git checkout --track -b f13 origin/f13

4. build the doc:

publican build --formats html-single --langs nl-NL


Note that you can build more than one format at once, for example: 
publican build --formats html-single,html,pdf,ebook --langs nl-NL

I'll have the Translation Quick Start Guide updated shortly to document 

Thanks again
