Re: Let's move to ddtp.debian.org - mail interface

Hi Martin and others
Danish doesn't use the mail interface. Even trivial changes are made through the review process.

 Please don't
 skip the mail interface. It is very helpful for 
 understaffed "teams" like the german
 one (basically me).
 don't use the mail interface to get new work to
 translate. I use it 
 for trivial changes in
 my point of view.
 Over all,
 i think that the mail interface is a powerful tool, but 
 dangerous as well. $(random contributor) has
 direct access without 
 review. Perhaps the
 access to it should be coupled to a DDTP account.
 A nice feature before the move
 to ddtp2.debian.net was the automatic 
 answer to submissions. It showed errors in the
 files submitted and 
 contained a direct link
 to the new database entry. At present one has to 
 open the web interface to check whether the
 translation made it into the 
 DB and if the
 encoding is ok. According to file(1) I send "UTF-8
 English text, with very long
 lines". Sometimes I forget to change 
 "Description-de:" to
 "Description-de.UTF-8:" and get garbage. The mail
 digestion routine relys on this instead of
 checking the file type of the
