Daniel, was something broken in the review I sent to you?
most of the suggested changes for the debconf templates were not usable
as they were completely wrong.
for the records, this is your entire suggested diff for templates:

i used '_Description: Linux Containers: LXC setup' which is in sync with
what linux-container uses (Linux Containers: Container setup).
for lxc/auto, i used your suggested new short description and the second
part of your suggested sentence in the long description, ending up with:
_Description: Automatically start Linux Containers on boot?
Linux Containers that have their configuration files copied or
symlinked to the /etc/lxc/auto directory can be automatically started
during system boot, and shut down on reboot or halt.
If unsure, choose yes (default).
so i used all there could be used. the rest of your suggested changes
are just wrong. the package does not do what you suggested it to say. it
does what i described originally.
while i certainly appreciate corrections for style/grammar/typo/wording
etc., i prefere if you do not change the meaning unless you actually had
a look at what the package does. apparently, maintainers still do
understand their packages better than translators.,
for the rest, well, lxc got two new debconf questions and the newly
added linux-container package has 11 debconf questions. of course they
are untranslated initially.
