It could be simply accepted, and the maintainers could it sort out among
themselves.  As it was done for groff and japanese support for example.

A much better link is the thread starting at
(thanks Jeroen), which at least makes clear what the issue actually is.
It also appears that if Jason would be enthusiastic about i18n, we
would have an i18n'ed apt half a year ago, but that is also my personal
impression from what little information is publically available (considering
that the technical disagreements are minor).

All three bug reports on this issue don't have any record of a life sign of
Jason.  And it seems that some mail with technical discussion has been
private.  That doesn't give anybody a good head start to help.
