Old translations are fetched/translations for stable and oldstable not updated


There is a problem with fetching translations via DDTSS (I didn't try
the email interface). Right now for packages with no translations, the
oldest available description is fetched. For example translating
kanjidic to german (but seen as well with akonadiconsole, libfuse-dev,
libphonon-dev and libpolylib64-8):

kanjidi was fetched via DDTSS and this version was translated:
http://ddtp.debian.net/ddt.cgi?desc_id=4387&language=de (package
description is still active in lenny and squeeze). After that you
could fetch kanjidic again, retrieving this version:
http://ddtp.debian.net/ddt.cgi?desc_id=82333&language=de (active in
wheezy and sid). So far so good, but only the translation for wheezy
and sid are seen by the user.

That is because right now only the translations for testing and sid
are updated. Translations for stable and oldstable stay the same (see
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/main/i18n/). Either it
should be impossible to translate old package descriptions or the
translations for stable and oldstable should be updated as well.

Thanks for looking into this problem, so translators won't do useless work :)
