summarizing i18n todo (was Re: [potato] last not i18ned part in bf and more)
My impression regarding base-config is that there are structure
problems to debconf in Potato that prevent proper i18n.
I would *really* prefer to leave all that aside right now and focus on
the key issues:
(a) providing LANG_CHOOSER'ified dbootstrap
- which flavors on i386 ? all ? Doesn't it require the fb stuff,
thus that would mean we would enable this on compact and idepci
- lets go for it and make LANG_CHOOSER part of the mainstream!
(b) providing i18n'd syslinux stuff (i386 only)
- I know some platforms have syslinux font issues which probably
can't be solved by up -- but that's not a good reason to
disable this functionality for all the other langs (most of
which can probably use the default font?)
- are we going to provide a different boot disk on i386, one for
each language? Or can we just provide a script users can run
to replace the .txt files?
