I just gave Laura admin-rights on the debian-flyers CVS repo @ alioth, after
discussion on IRC.

Laura: the current flyers build system uses CVS Id's to check for up to
date-ness of translations.  IIRC that's the same system as used by
www.debian.org.  Reimplementing this in git has been a showstopper for the
conversion to git for the last couple of years (decennia ?).  I'm perfectly
fine by any non-perfect solution to this problem.  Just dumping the
check-functionality is an acceptable tradeoff, imnsho.

And thanks _a_ _lot_ for volunteering!

Thanks, Bye,
