I think this is a bug in po4a. po4a seems to analyse the SGML very
carefully but ignores conditionals.

Assume large parts of an SGML are commented out this way. Since po4a
ignores it, it will generate a large PO file containing unwanted strings.

On the other side it simplifies the task for Release Notes. I will
remove this loop about all architectures and remember this code snipped
for other projects :-)

He installed it already but mentioned (after an additional request from
me) that we have to wait for the Etch release to have this version
installed ...

If the current version of po4a is not sufficient this is probably a
workaround. I could ask Matt Kraii (web master) for the installation
in his home directory.
