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
some mistakes.

Could anyone read my template and confirm that it is enough
good for a release ?

Thanks in advance
Sylvain Le Gall

ps: please CC me, i am not subscribed to the list.
Template: mldonkey-server/config_exist_no_options
Type: note
_Description: Warning
 A configuration for MLDonkey has been detected, but
 the mldonkey_options executable cannot be found. Therefore,
 the settings from the current MLDonkey configuration cannot
 be fetched.
 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.

Template: mldonkey-server/config_exist_no_dir
Type: note
_Description: Warning
 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
 configuration files.
 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.

Template: mldonkey-server/fasttrack_problem
Type: note
_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
 mldonkey server.
 See /usr/share/doc/mldonkey-server/README.Debian for more information.

Template: mldonkey-server/launch_at_startup
Type: boolean
Default: false
_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
 use it.

Template: mldonkey-server/run_as_user
Type: string
Default: mldonkey
_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
 MLDonkey share.
 You will use this user account to share and get data from the
 peer-to-peer networks.
 This user will be a system user (if created). You won't be able
 to login into your system with this user name.

Template: mldonkey-server/mldonkey_group
Type: string
Default: mldonkey
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/reown_file
Type: boolean
Default: false
_Description: Move old files?
 You have changed the MLDonkey user. You can change the ownership of
 your files to the new user.
 Proceed changes?
 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.

Template: mldonkey-server/mldonkey_dir
Type: string
Default: /var/lib/mldonkey
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/mldonkey_move
Type: boolean
Default: false
_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.
 Proceed changes?

Template: mldonkey-server/mldonkey_umask
Type: string
Default: 0022
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/mldonkey_niceness
Type: string
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/shared_directories
Type: string
Default: share
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/client_name
Type: string
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/plugin
Type: multiselect
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.

Template: mldonkey-server/max_hard_download_rate
Type: string
Default: 0
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/max_hard_upload_rate
Type: string
Default: 0
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/max_alive
Type: string
Default: 48
_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
 (in hours).
 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.

Template: mldonkey-server/password
Type: password
_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.

Template: mldonkey-server/repassword
Type: password
_Description: Retype password of the admin user:
 Please confirm your admin's password.

Template: mldonkey-server/false_password
Type: note
_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.
