I have no control over what people do in Rosetta, but when asked, I tell
them that I only incorporate strings that aren't in Debian (although
occasionally I do incorporate strings that are untranslated in Debian,
but not many of those and only when it's convenient or necessary). For
most languages I'm not in a position to decide which of two translations
are "better", so I don't want to carry unnecessary diffs to

Maintaining d-i translations of strings that aren't in Debian is a big
chunk of work for me, and it's not a whole lot of fun.

As far as I'm concerned, they're responsible for merging those
translations into Debian themselves; I don't speak Kurdish, so there's
no realistic prospect of me being able to do so for them.
