Yup; the autobyhand stuff we have now (used by debtags and
debian-maintainers) makes that easy to work with too.

I'm still not entirely comfortable with having something outside of
ftpmaster determine which translations should be in which suites,
but that's something that'll probably need changes in apt-ftparchive
to improve, and can be left 'til later.

So I'd say:

 - prepare a byhand upload
 - targetted at unstable (ie Distribution: unstable)
 - with a byhand file called ddtp-translations_2007.12.12-1_all.tar.gz
   or similar (different package name or version, eg)
 - section should be "raw-translations"
 - that tarball should contains:
    ie, translations for all components and languages, uncompressed


If you can upload all that somewhere I can have a look at it and make
sure it's workable, rather than directly to the archive, that'd seem
like a good next step.

Any suggestions/scripts for validating the uploaded file would be
good too.
