MLDonkey: proof reading my english template
I am the debian maintainer of mldonkey. One of my user has suggested
that i should send my debconf templates to you, in order to have a
better english style.
My english is pretty poor, and this user (German) has already corrected
Could anyone read my template and confirm that it is enough
good for a release ?
Thanks in advance

ps: please CC me, i am not subscribed to the list.
A configuration for MLDonkey has been detected, but
the mldonkey_options executable cannot be found. Therefore,
the settings from the current MLDonkey configuration cannot
This is a typical error, if you have uninstalled the mldonkey-server
package and later reinstall it.
Ignore this message in case you think there is nothing to be
saved from your current configuration.
Your configuration will be saved to downloads.ini.dpkg.
A former installation of mldonkey-server has been detected, but
we cannot find the directory coming with it.
The installation will create a fresh directory with new .ini
Afterwards you can copy your old .ini configuration files to this new
directory and re-run "dpkg-reconfigure mldonkey-server" to update
the remaining debconf values stored in /etc/default/mldonkey-server.
_Description: Bug #200500
Previous versions of mldonkey-server suffer from a serious DFSG policy
The plugin for the fasttrack protocol (e.g. used by kazaa) of
mldonkey-server was made with illegal coding practice. This version
fixes the problem by removing this plugin from the MLDonkey package.
Any fasttrack sources will be filtered out of your files.ini.
Your entire fasttrack upload will disappear with the next restart of the
See /usr/share/doc/mldonkey-server/README.Debian for more information.
_Description: Launch at startup?
Do you want to launch MLDonkey as a system service?
If you choose yes, each time your machine starts, the MLDonkey server will be
If you choose no, you will need to launch MLDonkey yourself each time you want to
_Description: MLDonkey user:
Define the user who will run the MLDonkey server process.
Please do not choose a real user. For security reasons it is
better if this user does not own any other data than the
You will use this user account to share and get data from the
This user will be a system user (if created). You won't be able
to login into your system with this user name.
_Description: MLDonkey group:
Define the group which will run the MLDonkey server process.
Please do not choose a real group. For security reasons it is
better if this group does not own any other data than the MLDonkey share.
Users of this group can start and stop the MLDonkey server and
can also access the files fetched from the peer-to-peer networks.
_Description: Move old files?
You have changed the MLDonkey user. You can change the ownership of
your files to the new user.
PS: the former user won't be deleted from /etc/passwd, you will
have to do it yourself later (e.g. with deluser(8)), or you keep it
along with the old configuration.
_Description: MLDonkey directory:
Define the directory to which the MLDonkey server will be chdired and chrooted.
The .ini configuration files, incoming and shared directories will be in this directory.
Chroot support is not complete. For now, chroot is not possible, but it
may be enabled in the near future.
_Description: Move the old configuration?
You have changed the mldonkey directory. You can move the old files
to this new directory.
If you choose no, the old directory won't be deleted. You will have to
do it yourself.
_Description: Umask of MLDonkey:
Since MLDonkey will run as a system user, it is not easy to move/delete
files from the incoming dir. By setting a umask, you can provide access to these
files for MLDonkey's group or all users.
Examples: 0002 will give rw access to MLDonkey's group, 0000 will give
access to all users.
_Description: Niceness of MLDonkey:
MLDonkey uses heavy calculation from time to time (like hashing very big
files). It should be a good idea to set a very kind level of niceness,
depending on what ressources you want to give to MLDonkey.
You can set values from -20 to 20. The bigger the niceness, the lower the priority
of MLDonkey processes.
_Description: Shared directories:
List of directories you want to share. By default, the incoming directory will
always be shared.
The syntax of this list is a list of strings separated by ";". For example:
share ; mp3
Since MLDonkey will be chrooted, you need to specify shared dirs with
regards to the new root directory of MLDonkey (e.g. if you want to share
/var/lib/mldonkey/share and MLDonkey user's home is /var/lib/mldonkey,
you need to write "share" or "/share").
Chroot support is not complete. For now, chroot is not possible, but it may be enabled
in the near future.
_Description: MLDonkey client name:
The name of your server. This is the name that will be presented to other
users of the peer-to-peer networks.
You could use the name of your website. Example: http://me.my.home/
Don't use " or any other special characters.
Choices: Directconnect, Opennap, Overnet, Soulseek, Bittorent, Gnutella
Default: Directconnect, Opennap, Overnet, Soulseek, Bittorent, Gnutella
Description: MLDonkey Plugins:
MLDonkey can use several different filesharing networks. Choose the networks
you want to use with your server.
The EDonkey network is always enabled. Take a look at the different port settings,
you will need to make, if you use a firewall.
_Description: Maximal download speed (kB/s):
Set the maximal download rate. It can be useful to limit this rate, in
order to always have a minimal bandwidth for other internet applications.
It has also been noticed that a full use of the bandwidth could cause
problems with DSL connection handling. This is not a rule, it is just
based on a few experiments.
0 means no limit.
_Description: Maximal upload speed (kB/s):
Set the maximal upload rate. You must keep in mind that a peer-to-peer
network is based on sharing. Do not use a very low rate.
Some networks calculate the download credit by the upload rate. More
upload speed means more download speed.
As for the download speed, you should limit this rate so that you
can still use the internet even when MLDonkey is running.
0 means no limit.
_Description: Maximal time to live for the server:
MLDonkey needs to be restarted from time to time. This is safer for memory
consumption and all. You need to set the time between automatic restarts
The only problem with this is that you will loose some upload credits. You
can set this variable to a very high value in order to be sure to have a
sufficient time to gather a lot of credits.
For example: 24 for one day, 168 for one week.
_Description: Password of admin user:
As of version 2.04rc1, a new user management appears. The password is
encrypted and stored in downloads.ini.
If you want to add a new user for MLDonkeys user management or
want to change the password, refer to /usr/share/doc/mldonkey-server/README.Debian.
_Description: Retype password of the admin user:
Please confirm your admin's password.
_Description: Passwords do not match
The two password you enter must be the same.
You will be asked until you can provide the same password twice.
