Re: apache: call for translators
(les francophones : il s'agit en résumé du passage à po-debconf
d'apache. Je propose de prendre en charge cette traduc, mais on ne
pourra relire que mi-août quand je reviendrai)

Grin.....I just copied it one hour ago on my laptop so that I may

The french campaign for po-debconf switch will intensify in the
upcoming weeks : Michel Grentzinger started from the "z" letter (he
reached the "r" letter before leaving for holidays)...and now I will
start from the "a" letter.
We already did the job for all packages which use debconf and had a

If translation are outdated, thay will be marked "fuzzy" after the
"debconf-gettexize" procedure, so don't worry : debconf will *not*
show translations when at least one paragrph is fuzzy for one

shown *only* when they are up-to-date.
I'll start to work on the french translation. As I leave on sunday for
two weeks, don't expect something before Aug. 18th. All french
translations are proofread by debian-l10n-french contributors and
several people there are also on holidays....
PS : what about apache2 ? Do you plan a switch for it ? I have it in
my TODO list for the upcoming two weeks....
