For Daniel (the aptitude package maintainer), 218232 is about the
translation of "Hit" in Traditional Chinese (zh_TW) in apt.

The original bug submitter mentioned that the current translation is
quite strange. Though Matt Zimmerman requested for more information,
namely a suggestion, no answer was received.

I recently jumped in APT development for helping in handling l10n,
just like I'm doing for aptitude. Then I revived this bug report and
requested to a few people, including the probably appropriate mailing
list, for their advice.

The discussion in 218232 is currently going on (the consensus still
needs to be reached). I guess that later on, aptitude's translation
will need to be adapted of course. 

apt has: 擊中 
aptitude has: 命中 

Ambrose Li proposed:

As Rex Tsai is aptitude's translator, I guess the some input from him
is appropriate. Anyway, I suggest that users of zh_TW localisation
discuss together these various issues and then later propose a new PO
file for aptitude and another one for APT (please remember that the
current one for APT is still incomplete).
