Re: [DDTSS]: the German team

I see German team has translated the initramfs-tools, but how has it done that?
Well, now I have to share how to cheat ;)
 - go to the DDTP package page (1)
 - from there go to the latest version (2)
 - download your version (3)
 - sed -i 's/Description-it:/Description-it.UTF-8:/'
 - translate the headline
 - send a mail

But before starting - think whether you really want to make this effort to gain
leadership in a worthless statistic. To me it seems more sensible to do
something else: Translate squeeze descriptions and hope for the repair of the system. The system will propagate the headlines of your work to newer descriptions
with unchanged headlines.

    for (i=MAX_VALID_INDEX, b=0; b < LIMIT; i--, b++)
        examine http://ddtp.debian.net/ddt.cgi?desc_id=$i
        if  [no-translation for $i]; then
            pull $i into DDTSS (using curl)
            translate as usual
