******** Archiving this repo ************

This is not the end of the book quest: just the end of this repo:
I have now another design in mind that would totally change the
repository structure and I don't want to start with a .git history
bloated with 100MB and 71MB of files on tree.

On main ideas for the new:

- Artworks/Logos/Titles should not be hosted on the repo, they
  should be hosted on peppercarrot.com/sources or extras and
  being downloaded/updated on the fly.

- The repo should contain an auto-updater with less impact on the
  website. Requesting big zip from the server is not a sane way.
  I reduced the footprint, but this design is not going to work
  if I want to expand to 40 languages and generate PDF and books.

- One master copy (English) and all other lang as 'soft-copy' that
  auto-update. All texts externally linked on txt files for being
  translated easily.

- Lightweight repo.

INFO:

==> I'll probably keep this repo on Framagit until mid-2020

==> New repo will be called book-publishing

==> This repo will be named book(archived - EOLMay2020)
