Bug#291954: The kdebase templates and the German translation
I'm writing to this list in hopes that the situation of the German
translation for the kdebase debconf templates can be clarified.
We've just recevied Bug#291954 , "[l10n] german translation of
kdebase debconf messages" from Burkhard Lück.
However, a translation was already included in kdebase 4:3.3.0a-1
(back in September 2004), and the templates had not changed in the
meantime. Such translation was sent in Bug#264608  by Erik Schanze.
_Still_, there was an older bug from Helge Kreutzmann, Bug#252060 ,
which also contained a translation. We missed this bug when uploading
the translation in #264608 -- this shouldn't have happened, but that's
how it went. Sorry.
I apologized to Helge in , inviting him to make corrections to
Erik's translation if necessary. If you follow the bug, you can see
that he did, and CC'ed Erik asking for approval, but there has been no
reply until now.

So, the KDE maintainers (and, I can imagine, any maintainer) would be
very happy to have only one translation sent, ideally with some sort
of "this translation has the approval of the relevant l10n team" link.
This way, a straightforward action can be performed ("include the .po
file") without fear of incruding the "wrong" translation.
Thanks for considering.
