Bas, thank you very much for your interest in i18n and your motivation
to collaborate with the Debian translators (or should I say "the
Knights of Knick-Knick"?).

Actually, Javier's mail was mostly focused on i18n of Debian specific
stuff. Of course, this does not blindly rule out upstream l10n work
because Debian can probably brin a lot of (wo)manpower to many of our
upstreams in that matter.

There's a chance that translators place such upstream translation on a
pretty low position in their priorities, but noone can tell.....so you
actually can try calling out for new translations here (debian-i18n).

I suggest you try using the "podebconf-report-po" tool (even if not
designed for non po-debconf translations, it works pretty well with
them by just using the "--podir" switch and probably adapt the defaul
