Nope, nothing automatic. There's a tool in podebconf to allow developper to do this email when they want to, but nothing like an automatic reminder to translators when a package containing outofdate translation from them is uploaded It would be cool, for sure, but it still has to be done. And as Christian noted, the bottleneck is mostly on the developper side here. I mean that there is more translator waiting for their translations to get integrated than developpers waiting for a given translator to update his work. Of course, what's automatic is that outofdate translations will get discarded from what's shown to users. Until they get updated, users will see the english message instead. Bye, Mt.
