I assume this is because the French index.docbook is autogenerated each  
release and then goes through translation?  Isn't that one of the  
reasons there is really no text in index.docbook, just stuff to  
assemble the rest of the files into the right order?

Well, I just added the two sets of entities to the main index.docbook,  
and I may have done something wrong, but the make still failed.  I have  
not dug through all the cmake and Makefiles, but I suspect that only  
the French index.docbook file is called, not the main one.  It looks  
like the French translation team has to figure out what to do, or their  
efforts will remain hidden for quite a while.

I agree we do not want to change minimum KDE version just for this.

Who should do this?  Your message did not include the KDE i18n-doc  
list.  Do we need to send something more to them?
