An experimental po-debconf is available at
It implements the following proposal:
no.po | nb.po
0 | 0 Silent, as there is no translation present.
1 | 0 Warn, request that the file is renamed from
| no.po to nb.po. Prints -no localized fields.
0 | 1 Prints -nb and -no localized fields.
1 | 1 Warn, request that no.po is removed. Prints -nb
| and -no localized fields (might be different).
I will upload it to unstable in a couple of days. If would be great
if someone wrote some text to put in po2debconf(1) ;)
Please check also the changelog entry.
