Announce of the upcoming NMU for the dvi2ps package
(second announcement after correcting a lot of far from perfect

Dear maintainer of dvi2ps and Debian translators,
On 27 nov 2006 I sent a notice to the maintainer of the dvi2ps Debian
package, mentioning the status of at least one old po-debconf translation update in the BTS (bug #dvi2ps).
I announced the intent to build and possibly upload a non-maintainer upload
for this package in order to fix this long-time pending localization
bug as well as all other pending translations.
The package maintainer did not respond in a week so I will proceed with the
The full planned schedule is available at the end of this mail.
The package is currently translated to: cs da de es fr ja nl pt_BR sv vi
Among these, the following translations are incomplete: <none>
If you did any of the, currently incomplete, translations you will get a
copy of this announcement BCCd to you. Please review the translation.

incorporate them into the package being built.
The deadline for receiving updates and new translations is 11 déc 2006. If you
are not in time you can always send your translation to the BTS.
You can download the pot, and any po, files from:
If the maintainer objects to this process I will immediately abort my NMU
and send him/her all updates I receive.
Otherwise the following will happen (or already has):

the package maintainer.
04 déc 2006 : post a NMU announcement to debian-i18n with you
11 déc 2006 : deadline for receiving translation updates
12 déc 2006 : build the package and upload it to DELAYED/0-day
send the NMU patch to the BTS
12 déc 2006 : NMU uploaded to incoming
13 déc 2006 : NMU enters unstable
Thanks for your efforts and time.
