Quoting Davide Prina (firstname.lastname@example.org): > the DDTSS is totally broken :-( When this change happened, I somehow secretly expected someone to step up and try fixing the DDT* things. I have to say that I personnally never anticipated the consequences of the change, even if I had been warned that it would happen. So, as many, I discovered the problem when it happened. not immediately as, at the same time, i18n.debian.net was broken too. Nobody stepped up, which indeed proves how fragile is our system (and that includes i18n.debian.net being fragile). As I can't magically fix all this by myself, I think that the only choice I have is detailing the simple alternative we have: - revert the change that drop long descriptions from Packages files - live with the localization effort of packages descriptions being broken and several localization teams demotivated All this unless someone jumps into DDT* code and try fixing it.
