I'm currently in the early process of the second l10n NMU campaign
ever (the first happened before etch). As usual with the help of the
i18n crowd. That campaign will last until the very final freeze of lenny.

While doing so, I already spotted a few packages which are missing LSB
headers. I *will* add these when NMUing such packages to add the
pending l10n stuff.

So, in case some people start a NMU campaign for LSB stuff and find
packages with pending debconf l10n bug reports, please drop me a note.
