Is that code available somewhere? I searched on alioth 
<http://alioth.debian.org/projects/ddtp/>, but the CVS repository is empty. 
Are you using the alioth project, or some other service?

Are the other people listed as group members on alioth helping out, or are 
you on your own currently? If so, would you need help with the rewrite?

Concerning the mail interface, how about Christian's proposal to use a .po 
file format for the mails instead of the former plain text?

I think that way more translators are familiar with editing .po files, 
instead of having to learn yet another translation format, even if it's a 
simple text file.




    What I can't stand is the feeling that my brain is leaving me for 
    someone more interesting.
