Hard-coded Churro legacy

Hi folks,

I wonder why nobody has not complained yet about the hard-coded Churro legacy. Up to now there are references to ddtp.debian.net in the DDTP/DDTSS code with
definitely three, perhaps up to five side effects:

 * Descriptions with prior translations such as (1) list
   "# other Descriptions of the syslinux package with a translation in de:"
   with references to ddtp.debian.net.
 * In (1) the "information about previous translation" form is empty.
 * The mail interface sends responses with links to ddtp.debian.net.

There are two more issues that might by related, but are less obvious:

 * The translation statistics at (2) pretend that at present there are no
   active translations.
* The generation of the Translation-xx files (eg at (3)) seems to be broken
   with regard to retranslations. Commits via DDTSS/mail propagate to
   next day's Translation-xx, unchanged descriptions for new package
   versions do not. One example: tzdata. For some reason one gets an
   up to date (German) translation in the package search (4) and the
   DDTP database (5), but »grep 'Package: tzdata' Translation-de« on
   my local copy of Translation-de fails.

Kind regards,
