The code is written in php, so it will generates the docbook stuff 'on
the fly'. I think an way to download a tarball with all the docbooks
(of a section, like xfdesktop in your case) and images (translated and
C) is the easiest way. You only have the extract the pages in your
local svn repo and commit the new stuff.

If you have a complete tarball with the manual directory structure and
files it is easy to update the repo and I assume we only do this once
in a while...
