I have already done that.  See the attached urls.ent.

I just got notification from him that this is complete.

Well, a bit.  As I mentioned in my reply to him just now, I just use
the English version.  

For slink, we just have to deal with this state of affairs.  Hopefully
for the potato release we can get Japanese versions of the messages?
I would suggest working towards potato for this rather than slink (I'm
still working in a forked version of the slink boot floppies for
documentation updates) since the internationalization system for
dbootstrap has changed a bit for slink.

As I mentioned also in the last message, we have moved the
boot-floppies CVS to cvs.debian.org.  This means we can offer both
anonymouse CVs access as well as grant access to this cvs area to
non-developers.  If anyone wants further details on getting this setup
(it's not setup yet) please contact myself or
