Actually, let's try to get Thomas answer about all this and be sure
that we're not doing duplicate work.
Thomas, I suggest we work with Lucas so that he can update his old
scripts to fit our new goal.....and you can adjust your extraciton
scripts so that they keep the list used by Lucas script up-to-date as
long as the work advances.
It would also be nice if we get some progress report at the end of the
campaign...thus following how many packages we've fixed and the
"score" of each.
I suggest we move this to debian-i18n so that discussions are
archived. If you do so, please keep all quotes so that people can have
a reference to originally private discussions. I don't do it now as I
need you, Lucas, to be OK for initially private mails to be quoted
