The option was added in 1.0.12 (--notdebconf)

I will try to detect automatically if this option shall be set, 
i.e. check if the directory containing the PO files is named po/ and
contained in a debian/ directory.

This algorithm may fail in some cases, but the consequences of such
failure should not be a big issue.

I will upload on Sunday, and will wait for more comments.

A default --deadline=+10days matches with a
 1) upload
 2) send call for translations
 3) wait 10 days for translation + package entering testing
 4) upload translations

I agree with Helge that maintainers should announce when they plan to
upload a new version.

For me the question is then more whether the +10days default is OK.
Maintainer also have a chance to change the sentence with an editor before
the message(s) are sent, if the proposed deadline is not OK.

I already committed the change to make --deadline=+10days the default
behavior (and to support the +10days syntax), but I can revert this before
Sunday if the majority disagrees.
