[Adam Di Carlo <adam@onshore.com>] summarizing i18n todo (was Re: [potato] last not i18ned part in bf and more)


Interested folks should join the debian-boot@lists.debian.org list.  

I really am ashamed and embarrased that we don't have i18n'd rescue
disks, or dbootstrap even, pretty much making a mockery of all the
hard work people have done translating the PO files and such.

Isn't there any hackers with knowledge and experience who can help
make this happen?

My impression regarding base-config is that there are structure
problems to debconf in Potato that prevent proper i18n.

I would *really* prefer to leave all that aside right now and focus on
the key issues:

 (a) providing LANG_CHOOSER'ified dbootstrap

     - which flavors on i386 ?  all ?  Doesn't it require the fb stuff,
       thus that would mean we would enable this on compact and idepci

     - lets go for it and make LANG_CHOOSER part of the mainstream!

 (b) providing i18n'd syslinux stuff (i386 only)

     - I know some platforms have syslinux font issues which probably
       can't be solved by up -- but that's not a good reason to
       disable this functionality for all the other langs (most of
       which can probably use the default font?)

     - are we going to provide a different boot disk on i386, one for
       each language?  Or can we just provide a script users can run
       to replace the .txt files?

What else?
