Re: Kazakh language localization in lenny release

I'm really sorry but for lenny, no chance, no. The gates have been
closed at the end of the (very long) l10n freeze, beginning of October

Adding updated files now would require a mass build and upload of
nearly all D-I packages, which is out of question as D-I is ready (and
even uploaded).

You mention that sublevels 1 and 2 are complete, but where?

In D-I SVN, they aren't:

bubulle@mykerinos:~/src/debian/debian-installer/packages/po/sublevel1> po_stat kk.po
Charset is UTF-8. Stats: 245 translated messages, 62 fuzzy translations, 198 untranslated messages.

bubulle@mykerinos:~/src/debian/debian-installer/packages/po/sublevel2> po_stat kk.po
Charset is UTF-8. Stats: 335 translated messages, 63 fuzzy translations, 111 untranslated messages.

Last time I updated information, Talgat Daniyarov
<tdaniyar@hotmail.com> was the person in charge of coordinating Kazakh
translations for D-I and the person who went though the new language
process...about 2 years ago.

He did a few updates, IIRC....but nothign came in in the last year or
so....despite the reminders I send regularly to translators,
particularly several I sent before the August-Septembre freeze

I'm very happy to see that other people are working on these
translations, but you should then get in touch with me to get commit
access and complete the work (*AND* commit yourself to maintain it,
not just a one-shot action).

The, we could activate Kazakh....but for squeeze.
