DDTP and debconf-templates:
  Now I don't reactivate the debconf modul in ddts. (tasksel dito)

  And I don't think, I should activate it in the old way. The debconf
  part of the ddtp make some problmes in the past and I will think about
  some aspects before we get new problmes..

The DDTP is a very good framework, if you
 - have >1000 little text
 - no other used translation framework
 - some translators

If you have large text, that you can't translate 'by the way' or if you
as translator need some skills, the DDTP is not the right way.

Yes, maybe we should make a ddtp-like mail interface to other
translations projekt.
