The spellchecker, which is Davide Viti's responsibility is run for all
languages. However, real spellchecking is only done for languages
which have an aspell wordlist.

Other spellchecker tasks are a few tests about translation consistency
(correct use of variables, legth of limited strings, etc).

See http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/spellcheck/

More generally, we should work on making these notification mails
easier to interprete for all translators. The current output is a bit
"geeky" (though still very useful of course).
