I didn't think d-i used dpkg, but used udpkg?

If you want to act as a gateway for l10n bugs, I have no objection...

I'm pretty much working on dpkg in arch now, it's a far more capable
system than CVS for multi-person working.  It'd be best for me if you
tagged off my arch repository and did the l10n updates there.

basis that a rushed translation job would be worse than no translation

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
