The main problem is that I generally have no clue about the maintainer's
plan when it comes at the proposal to remove obsolete templates.
I even have no clue whether (s)he may want to unmark them for translation.
I agree that updating this material is suboptimal. This is why I now
unmark such templates for translation when I find them and I recommend
dle contributors to skip them when reviewing.
This is something that will certainly improve with time in this process.
See the upcoming review for net-snmp, for instance.
This could be done for postfix of course.
