Bug#334499: base-config: Please switch to po4a to handle manpages translation

Package: base-config
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch l10n


Please find attached a patch to switch to po4a to handle manpages

This patch does the following things:
debian/control: adds po4a to Build-Depends:
debian/rules: builds manpages and installs them
removes all the translations
creates the man/ directory with the current translations in the po

To complete the work, you have to move apt-setup.8, base-config.8,
termwrap.8 and validlocale.8 into the man directory. I haven't done it

fuzzy translations and they should see that their translations are

If you receive new translations, just add them in the man/po/ directory,
add the language code in man/Makefile as well as the corresponding entry
in man/po4a.cfg.
