As far as I understand the bug report, the submitter's point is that
the 'rc ' flag characters are the initials of the _English_ status
words, and not really understandable when the legend has been
translated into words that start with other letters. The submitter
wants the line to read
fo exim 3.35-1 An MTA (Mail Transport Agent)
'f' and 'o' being the intials of "Fjern" and "Opsæt.-files" which
correspond to "Remove" and "Config-files".
The flag characters themselves do not appear to be translatable - they
are hard-coded in lines 175-177 of src/query.c.
Incidentally the Danish legend line is mistranslated; it should be
"Opsæt.-filer" (or perhaps even "Konfigureret") and "Udpakket".

What do you mean, dead? We get lots of lively spam.
