Using the link in the document itself ls like any decentralized way:
+ efficiency -- no need to parse metadoc for each page
+ reliability -- no broken links on metadoc failure
+ flexibility -- works with non-metadoc project docs
- human factor -- document maintainer is responsible for the link
- need to update path in several places if source moves
To deal with '-', we need to:
maintain personal responsibility for maintainers (actually
self-maintained in our case, isn't it?)
simply accept the need to update path -- it's already there :-)
Using metadoc, the pros are:
+ clearness for the lead translator (...or actually not?)
+ simplicity of batch update (isn't often?
Cons are the opposite.
Are we centralized or not? :-)
