I18N of a description by someone else, in my opinion, is no different than
a NMU change. If you think there is a difference, what is it?
The response will merely be to quote the NMU policy that developers should
be informed when their package changes.
As a side note, which I should be placing in an email separate from my
response directly to your comments, I'm impressed at the ignorance of some
posters in this battle. As a hint, the definition of spam is not "any
email that I personally don't like". By that definition, I suppose every
bug report and this email itself is spam, which is silly. Also, I have not
heard complaints about the equally automated BTS emails.
The whole issue is all a false front for people whom hate I18N, and will
not let the truth stand in the way of their hatred.
