This doesn't have my preference but I always give maintainers opinion the priority about these topics. My main problem comes when all maintainers do the same answer..:-). I'm then left with always the very same set of packages and I'm supposed to wait petiently for maintainer's good will.. Anyway, the freeze hasn't started so I'll move to other targets but that's a matter of weeks.... > > On the other hand, I'm reluctant to NMU because I still have doubts > > that the very final version of debconf templates is really what you > > want to have.

The main problem is: if I don't change English texts *at all*, then translations *will* be fuzzy as they're based on other (significantly different) texts. So, if you apply English changes later, particularly if you do to use all changes which the translations are based upon, then the risk of inconsistency between English and translations grows....and unfuzzy is maybe not the good solution (or maybe even not possible, for instance if the number of strings changes). So, really, it's much better if English changes *and* translations come together. Thus, I'll leave them up to you, including the unfuzz. Thanks for your quick answer, as my main goal was to raise the incertainties I had with this package.
