What do you call translation maintenance anyway ?keeping the translation up-to-date, and responding to bugrepports aboutexisting translations?
So that would mean that people who contribute new translations cannot be considered mantainer ? Obviously, considering how Debian is growing every month, there is much more than plain "maintenance" involved in _any_ Debian process.
There is a constant flow of contributions that, once accepted have to be maintained, but the maintainance part is 100% dependant on the contribution part and they _cannot_ be seen as equivalent.
So the question is: does Debian value maintainers ? or contributors ? or both ?
If the answer is both then there is a documentation bug, as people seem to call that, in the NMP document.
