Ah, ok, that's what I was imagining but was unsure about that.
So, once I got your feedback about the package and the script I think
we can move to the next steps and bit adjustments (specially because
the paths on ftp-master are not entirely clear for me). Thanks.

Some translators and other projects seems to have interest in
having access to all the translations, but since it is just a repack
of the original tarball to fit the BYHAND upload, IMHO, I don't think
it is necessary to provide a binary, if somebody else would think it
is interesting, then I probably would bother you again to get help on
implement and upload both binary and source ddtp-translations. :-)

Sorry, probably that was just my misunderstanding of how the
autobyhand works, the package would be under the same rules of all
other packages in Debian (keyring check and so on), so if it was
upload by someone else it would be considered an NMU, for some reason
I had the impression that it needs to be checked apart. Sorry, now it
is clear that dak will threat ddtp-translation as a regular package,
it just don't go to the archive as a binary .deb.
Thanks for all the info and help on this.
