Yes, yesterday I see the out-of-date files too. The problem ist a
broken cronjob on ddtp.debian.net. sorry
I will check and fix this.

I don't work on apt and co. This work is based on otavio's work.
But the running ddtp-server is my work. But only for the next months.
We like to switch the ddtp as part of the new i18n-framework.

dito. The server don't know all the special commands from the old
ddtp-server yet. sorry. No 'help', no 'admin', no 'review' etc.
But I like to add some of them. But we should concentrate on the work
of the i18n framework.

yes. But all the ideas about the DDTP during DebConf6, are ideas about
the new i18n framework.
I hope we can test the new apt version and can get this version to sid
and after some days to testing.
