sigh. so we somehow need to address this. I'm slightly in favor of
documenting it (because the fix is to disable a wanted feature
basically) but would also be open to include a fix which does that and
then documenting that.

But as both options seem less than ideal I'm slightly in favor of just
updating the docs. This means the least amount of work now *and* when
the fix is found. (Cause then we would also need to revert those two
changes, instead of one…)

d-e, d-e-i and d-e-c have all been uploaded to unstable now, I'm just a
bit reluctant to upload d-e-doc as the Danish and Dutch versions 
the brand new stretch-manual as PDF are broken and missing… but then,
this aint a regression and sid is still in development, so I might as
well just upload. (So that we have a higher version in sid when we want
to upload to jessie-proposed-updates…)

from irc today:

     source is copy+paste from the jessie version. the danish po file
     (is like 6 others) just a copy from the jessie danish po file. it 
     worked nicely for those 6 other languages.

we fixed those.

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Jessie/GettingStarted ?!
With a nice warning /!\ ?! :)
