first I am the maintainer of this page.

second, The page don't watch the bts! (I don't write this, or don't I?)

I am not the delay. If someone send me a bug report number, I include
this number in one day (as max time).

The german part are _not_ outdated. I get from the german translators
mails and I add this all.

I understand this problem. Some translators don't coordinate their
work. Some maintainer don't include translations bugs. sorry, but am
not the problem.

Because of this, I start the ddtp and use a _server_ for the
coordination of the translation of the descriptions...
