I like to setup a pootle test server (cvs version) for the translation
of the debian package descriptions. 

We have >10000 pot-files for the debian package description. We will
get >180000 po files with the 18 languages. 

This pootle server should not be a real production server. Only for
test the pootle system (with real data) and to get first experiences
in a debian environment. 

See you some problems? Or have you comments? Or should I wait for

btw: I like to setup a transdict test server too. But I need some more
     pointers for this... Maybe someone can help?
