As I said to Christian (BTS was CCed) I hope, at least that will be in
next versions of the package in sarge, after release.

Well, except for shadow, all the others were long enough in BTS to be
included in Sarge.
Although I understand, I find this quite disappointing, as we have
tried to bring the whole installation process to 100% on all levels,
and now we see that will not be although we respected
deadlines/provided translations with sufficient time in advance.
While we thought that dpkg will be the only untranslated part of the
installer in Debian, dpkg _was_ uploaded, especially for Sarge due to
l10n reasons, at my request (thanks Scott, again), now we find that
packages that had a translation _waaaaaaaay_ before dpkg are *NOT*
going to be in Sarge.
This feels like all the work was done in vain; we (the RO team) feel
really disappointed by this.
We have set a goal which was doable;
We made everything we had to do to make it happen;
We have even pressed a maintainer to make un upload that seemed to be
imposible to have;
In the end, everything goes to pieces because we didn't had luck...

Is a translation, what could go wrong? O ram I misunderstanding something?
