Re: Request for Pseudopackage: debian-i18n

(Replying only to list for discussion.)

I was not in Extremadura, so this is mostly a request for clarification...

Is this intended to also track translation bugs?
If so, I wonder if that is not duplicating existing or future mechanisms.

For Dutch translations, we track open bugs on http://dutch.debian.net/.
And other teams use similar pages and IIUC it is in principle available 
for all teams. I would expect such a service to be integrated into the 
new i18n infrastructure.

If you just want to track transitions then user tagging the relevant bugs 
could IMO work just as well with user set to debian-i18n@l.d.o. You don't 
need a pseudo package for that.
A pseudo package would only be needed if you want to file "umbrella" bugs 
that could then be blocked by other bugs.
