perkamon [1] is the tool used to translate man-pages to French, its
repository is on Gitorious [2], and the translation are handled with
po4a (so we work on PO files and it's quite easy to know how much
translated manual pages are). Please note that we are still working on
man-pages 3.29, so it is not yet proposed for upload [3].

	2 : http://gitorious.org/perkamon/man-pages
	3 : https://alioth.debian.org/projects/perkamon/

Once you cloned (or pulled) the repository [3], you just need to run
	make stats
in order to have an idea of how close we are.

	3 : git://gitorious.org/perkamon/man-pages.git

For example, right now (about the 3.29 release) we are up to date since
yesterday :

$ LANG=C make stats
man1: 178 translated messages.
man2a-m: 3768 translated messages.
man2n-z: 4305 translated messages.
man3a-f: 3218 translated messages.
man3g-m: 3154 translated messages.
man3n-s: 3920 translated messages.
man3t-z: 1295 translated messages.
man4: 1444 translated messages.
man5: 2112 translated messages.
man6: 13 translated messages.
man7a-l: 3625 translated messages.
man7m-z: 3174 translated messages.
man8: 278 translated messages.
30484 translated, 0 fuzzy, 0 untranslated ==> 100.00%

Denis (who is the coordinator) might give you a more accurate answer
(but he might not be available until Monday) and explain the current
workflow, but I guess once man-pages 3.29 will be released, we may begin
to work on the upcoming 3.30 unless we have other maintenance task to
perform (we usually take some time to address some issues to the
existing manual pages).

Thanks for the confidence.

Sorry to tell you that we are actually not yet working on 3.30.
