Re: [PKG-Openstack-devel] "Recycle" debconf translations for ironic?

Hello fellow Openstack maintainers,

I just noticed that two new packages of yours appeared in the archive,
both of them with familiar debconf templates.

A similar question raises for "ironic" but, here, it seems that files
from "neutron" have been re-used, which seems fine.

However, for Ironic, two new strings that seem specific to that
package appeared:

Template: ironic/enabled_drivers
Type: multiselect
Default: pxe_ipmitool
Choices: pxe_ipmitool, pxe_ipminative, pxe_ssh, pxe_seamicro, pxe_iboot, pxe_ilo, pxe_drac, pxe_snmp
_Description: Please select a list of Ironic drivers for this conductor to enable:
  It is possible to activate multiple drivers per Ironic conductor node to
  manage deployment and power. It is not mandatory to use the same list of
  activated drivers across all of your ironic-conductor nodes.

My problem, when I started the translation of this specific template
is the question that raised in my mind:

"what the hell is a 'conductor'"? ;-)

The conductor is a middleware on which requests are injected. It sits on a machine running nova-compute-ironic and that's the bit which will do the actual work of starting / stopping computers (for example, using IPMI).

Does the above helps? Or is it hebrew to you?
