Bonjour Henry-Nicolas,

THanks for your quick answer.

I would be fine doing the upload, however, I might want you to make a
few cosmetic changes:

exabgp (3.0.11-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * New upstream release
  * Closes: #687134 (debconf abuse)

The changelog entry is a bit scarce. You want to explain what you did
to drop the debconf abuse. I'd also expect that the text you
previously had in the debconf template would go in a NEWS.Debian file
(as I explained in the bug report about debconf abuse, warning package
users is a good idea....but that shouldn't be done with a debconf
note, but a NEWS.Debian entry would be fine.

Also, you want to close the bug report with the Japanese translation,
as the text to translate disappears in this issue.

With these changes, I'll be happy to upload your new package.
