Re: Releases and priorities (was: Re: Grub in D-I Level 2: stats not updated

Quoting Clytie Siddall (clytie@riverland.net.au):

> I'm not sure I'm getting useful notifications for iso-codes. The maintainers asked me to stop translating that package at the TP, which I did, but I haven't had any notifications since then, and I know iso-codes files have been updated several times. The D-I Level 2 stats say iso_3166 is complete, but none of the other files are included. I probably need to chase the maintainers about that.

For iso-codes, notifications are made for 3166 only (because this is
the only used in D-I).

Other files are left up to translators. I'm not sure it has been a
good idea to ask you stopping to do it in the TP. We have many
iso-codes translations that come through the TP (and LI Daobing is
very efficient at committing them).

You can probably target 100% for debconf. Not for squeeze, I'd say,
but for wheezy, this is possible.

I'll add a second to the list request. And I'll explain how the list
could be useful.

> I don't think I'm really up to chasing people in our community to do this. I can just manage the occasional translation update, but full-on social contact (our community is very friendly and energetic in this respect) is too much for me now. I'll try emailing J-C separately, and see if he can set it up.

Even if there are no other contributors, at least mails targeted at
the robot would be useful.

This is what I'll include in my mail to support the list creation.
