Whaou. I would love to have the possibility to use the third solution for,
say, french l10n issues.

I did try to find those scripts in the CVS of debbugs to see how we should
format the external database (which we already have, more or less) to
benefit of this feature when it becomes available for more people, but I did
fail to do so.

Could you please point me to these scripts and databases?

Thanks for your time, Mt.
