Quoting Joey Hess (firstname.lastname@example.org): > If moving it to git will cause any significant trouble for translators and > task maintainers, please let me know. Well, frankly....it will..:-) Several translators, including /me, are comfortable enough with git to be able to commit themselves directly in a git "repo". That might be the same for task maintainers... But many aren't and holding hands of a few dozen people to confirm they do it and do it right is.....slightly above my possibilities. This is not specific to tasksel, of course. The more packaging goes to git, the more this problem arises..:-) On the other hand, the wish of developers to have a better revision control system should be the driving force. What I propose is that you make the switch to git, with a simple enough howto (inspired by the dpkg maintainers git usage howto). Then, we explain to translators that change. Those who feel comfortable with committing themselves will continue to do it with git. Others will go back to the bug report method....and one of the i18n folks will take care to commit stuff properly.
