Welcome to the wonderful world of Debian translation ;)

Seriously, such problems confirm the high need for an robust and easily
system to manage translations from the packager point of view.

First issue: getting all existing translation and asking for new ones
Needed tool:
 - a server acting as gateway to a svn-like repository
 - a way for packager to express wich parts are to be translated and how
 - a bunch of interface scripts 

Second issue: rebuilding a new package may introduce subtle dependency issues
Needed tool: a tool taking:
 - a binary package already compiled (the one in testing)
 - a source tree
 and producing another binary pkg with the content of the previous one, but:
 - l10n material (from source tree)
 - changelog
 - md5sum

I'm on it, but any help or advice is welcome.
