Subscribe to ffmpeg-cvslog and look for commits changing the
documentation. I would say it's a good idea to have the revision
number written in the translated documentations. So that whenever
someone decides to update, she can go through knowing what changed.
Also users reading the documentation have it stamped somewhere that
the documentation they're reading is good only for a certain revision.
About actually having the translated documentation in FFmpeg-SVN, I
don't have much of an opinion since it's Diego's field (and I imagine
that if/when we get other translations people will want to modify the
build system to build a certain translation...)

I disagree =)
