I think that the Installation Quick Start Guide should be above the full 
Installation Guide for two reasons:

* the IQSG is likely to be of greater benefit to a greater number of users

* when a translator has finished with the IQSG, they can re-use many of 
the strings to get a head start on the full Installation Guide

I would also like to add two items as 0 on the list (0.1 and 0.2?) :

* The docbook locales list (I guess this fills the same place in the 
L10N workflow as the old docs-common-entities module) -- this is 
available in Transifex here: 

* The Publican "Common_Content" sections -- not currently available in 
Transifex, but will become so soon

Should I add these to the top of the Guides table? Although they're not 
"guides" themselves, localizations of the guides will not work unless 
these items are completed first.
