Re: Bug#661565: ITP: nyancat -- Terminal-based Pop Tart Cat animation

Debian already has 35 thousand binary packages. Do we really need to package everything? Even a tiny software toy brings a bit of burden to the entire project:
translators need to translate the description, etc.
New translations increase amount of data you have to download every day. Ban translations!

Having trouble comprehending how the translators having to translate nyancat's description places a burden on the project?

I have no idea how did you infer that from my words, but yes, I have trouble comprehending this.

Are translators held in a labor camp and forced to translate descriptions of every single package? I thought that they are volunteers, and that they translate stuff because it's fun for them.
