Recommended usage for podebconf-report-po


podebconf-report-po is more and more advertised and used, which are both
good things.

There has been recently a few threads about a recommended usage for
podebconf-report-po, so I plan to add an EXAMPLES section in its manpage.

Here is the current version that you can review (a formatted version, to
be used with less -R, is attached):

       debconf templates
           podebconf-report-po --call --languageteam --with-translators \
                               --deadline=‘LC_ALL=C date -R -d ’+10days’‘

           This must be called from the package root directory (or from the
           debian, or from the debian/po directories)

       program translations
           podebconf-report-po --call --languageteam --with-translators \
                               --notdebconf \
                               --deadline=‘LC_ALL=C date -R -d ’+10days’‘

           This must be called from the parent of the po/ directory (or from
           the po directory itself)

       In both cases, this will send a call for new translations to the
       <debian-i18n@lists.debian.org> mailing list and will ask translation
       updates to the previous translators. The language teams will also be
       notified and should be able to react if the assigned translator is
       known to be MIA.

       You should then receive translations within 10 days and should make a
       new release at that time.

Best Regards,
