Re: Intent to NMU of help for an l10n upload of mimedefang to fix pending po-debconf l10n bugs

Hi Christian,

thanks for the reminder. I would like to do the upload myself, but if
you want to help to get more updated or new debconf translations I would
appreciate it. I thought I had called podebconf-report-po for mimedefang
some weeks ago too, but I might have missed this package. Please let me
know, if you want to do the call or if I should do so.
