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.
