Re: Packaging very large i18n material

Not on the debian servers.

These are Ralf's backports of KDE3 and related material to woody.
Whilst I appreciate Ralf's work, I would like to get wider input on this
issue from other debian developers as well as users before uploading to
the official debian archives.

One of the main reasons for starting this thread is to see if there is
any strong reaction from other debian developers to the addition of 37 new
i18n packages.  As I mentioned earlier, if every software packager uses
this solution then we have chaos.

How does this spoil the translations?  I don't see what you're saying here.

Which is why I've restarted this thread, since option 4 is unfortunately
the status quo.
