That URL seems to refer to an index of documents that are
changelogs. Translating changelogs doesn't sound like a useful thing, so
you presumably mean translating the newest revisions. This is bit
confusing, especially since the "download" links are those that allow us
to _view_ the document normally!

Besides, it is difficult to see how the material relates to the online
material http://validator.w3.org/docs/ . Is the material you mention
really stable enough for translation, if it is not stable enough for
going public in English?
