I don't know a way for checking how long a description was in the DDTP
server but knowing that it is there for a Lenny version in French
(please note: I always was talking about the French translation in my
previous mail!) I simply assume it exists for some time. The question
is for what reason it was not just taken over for later versions of the
package. (I don't question that there are reasons - I just want to know
these if there are some.)

I was not grepping just the short descriptions. I wanted to provide a
quick and simple proof of my statement that a French bind9 translation
was just there and is not any more. As I said I'm importing complete
translations into UDD but wanted to spare you the UDD details here on

There is no problem at all with the German translation - it is available
and looks identical for lenny, squeeze and sid (except some removed

I have no idea what you want to prove with this and in how far this
is related to the French translation.

This fails the problem I wanted to underline: There was a translation
which was lost. You willnot solve this by asking for additional
