ok. Maybe we will change this to DTP (Debian Translation Project) in
remote future. I have this task (translation of .po files and man pages)
on my privat TODO list.

And for your information: the DDTP support already the translation of
the debconf templates of the debian-install system (this is in the
normal debconf part) and the server also support the description of the
normal package description of the udebs packages (didesc part). But the
last one is not used now.

I don't really see a problem. Read the FAQ or the ddtp.debian.org web
page and you will find the words 'Debian _Description_ Translation Project'.
