Re: bind9 1:9.5.0.dfsg-1: Please translate debconf PO for the package bind9

Hi LaMont,

Before people start translating, may I suggest a review round for the

The debian-l10n-english list is the preferred forum for reviews, CCed. 
Please drop d-i18n from further review discussion (but please add me in 
CC if needed as I don't read that list).

Problem with review based purely on the PO file is that you don't see the 
context (especially what is a title, prompt or introduction), so my 
proposed alternatives may not be optimal.

Should this be terminated by a colon or a period?

Wouldn't "... to bind9 on startup" be better? Especially given that the 
next string already uses that phrase. If those strings are part of the 
same dialog there seems a bit too much duplication in them.

s/here //
s/bind9-daemon/bind9 daemon/

Sounds a bit crooked. Maybe:
"Under which user account should the bind9 daemon be run?"
Or if it is a text entry prompt:
"User account for running the bind9 daemon:"

Twice contains a double space (probably trailing space in your templates 
file. "as which ... should start as": duplicate "as".

Suggestion for alternative text:
"The default is to run bind9 under the 'bind' user account. If you would 
like to use a different user account, please enter the username of that

What's the difference between "executed on startup" and "run when bind9 
starts up"? Or, if these are title and prompt for the same dialog, 
there's again a bit too much duplication.
