Jumping from english > to another language all the time sure looks pityful. No, if you don't know english in the best way, you are happy of any non-english text you can find! The ddts try to translate importent templates first. Also get a Polish user: he know Russian as first foreign language. Maybe he like to show Polish, Russian, German and English in this order... > I think *technically*, the translated template belong into the package. > Any objections? no. I will not avoid any translation in the package itself. This is the best way. But the user should not depend on the package maintainer if he like translation. A other example: woody is stable and don't include translations for all packages. What is the problem, if a user install a 'debconf-l10n-de_0.9.woody_all.deb' and get his translations with only one package? > So, what to do? > > How about you continue filing bugs with translated templates for the > time being? The release is not anywhere on the horizon. Why sending bugs to the bts? We have the translations on a central place and the maintainer only must get it and package it.
