Denis is talking about the status pages for debconf templates that do
not use po-debconf. These templates had to be translated "the hard
way" by putting translations directly in the templates file, without
using PO files.

The switch to po-based debconf translations ahppened shortly after the
release of woody, in September 2002. After active campaining by
translators, there is no more significant packages that still use the
old system. The very few that still do are unmaintained and crappy
stuff none cares about.

This is why Denis proposes to abandon the above pages.

That's possible. In the days the DDTP was active (up to November
2003), it proposed debconf templates translation....for those that
were never applied by maintainers, I'm afraid there's not much hop...

If you want to work on debconf tempaltes translations, then
http://www.debian.org/intl/l10n/po-debconf/ is your friend.
