Hi Bastian and everybody,

first, many thanks for taking over the maintenance of cloud-init.

Regarding the debconf question, I was also dubious about its relevance.  The
only reason why I kept it is that I wanted to stay as close as possible to the
Ubuntu package.  However, it costs a lot of extra work because it is
translated, and because there are two sources for the translations (the Debian
translators, and the Ubuntu pacakge).  If you are willing to diverge, then I
think that it can be removed (keeping of course the silent debconf templates
for preseeding).

Have a nice day,
