I thought of another problem. Versions. Are they in the control.tar.gz for
each subpackage? Or is there a small control file in each subpackage that
contains the info?
Another thought. Should signatures be in a single .tar.gz, like I suggested,
or should they be in each .tar.gz
If they are the single .tar.gz, then translators would have to get it updated
when releasing a new version of a translation.
Don't worry -- shop.
