following debian-boot and I was pretty sure that some didn't follow
debian-i18n as well.
So, as you may imagine, being sure to reach all D-I translators was
indeed giving me and Dennis Stampfer some headaches.

who didn't answer already and finally a third time by sending mails
one by one.
Number of languages concerned: 48
Number of answers received : 36
