Uups. That should be git://git.debian.org/git/webwml/packages.git

This is the same machine as svn.debian.org and
alioth.debian.org. So it should work either for all of them or for none.

It is done during the daily cronjob. Whether I acutally commit these
changes is a whole other topic. But now that one can actually use the
translations, I plan to do this, yeah. I usually let changes linger a
few days in the master branch before merging them to debian-master which
is the code run on packages.debian.org. So if people are interested in
updating their translations regulary, they should subscribe to
email@example.com where pushes to the git.debian.org
repository are announced, and update their .po files once I push changes
to the .pot files to the master branch.
