Re: Proposal: move win32-loader in SVN repository

Well, not easily..:-)

I personnally think that translating win32-loader should be a quite
high priority for translators. Something equivalent to level 2,
indeed. But, on the other hand, I don't want to clutter level 2 stats
with it....because, as already explained, there are languages that
are/have been 100% for level 2 but *don't* have NSIS translated. So it
wouldn't be fair for these to include win32-loader to level 2

This is also not only about being "fair" but make my own task easier
during the final release process. During that process, I try as much
as possible to get level 2 completed, nagging translators very hard to
get them to 100%. It would be more complicated to have some languages
for which the target is not 100% but, say, 82%, because these
languages do not have win32-loader support.

As a compromise, I could maybe add win32-loader to level 3 (along with
xorg, menu....).

Well, having it in any level will not help much there. It will help
for translators who read docs or read mails in debian-i18n. BUt you'll
still get some bug reports.

Anyway, as there is no perfect solution, my best proposal currently is
moving the package either directly under trunk/ or into an "otherpkgs"
directory parallel to packages/ (in case we decide to put something
else in D-I SVN. And, simultaneously, add win32-loader to level 3.
