Justin did a very careful review, correcting all the Frenglish mistakes I introduced. This changes the templates files enough for me to resend them. Thanks a lot, Justin, for these detailed reviews and comments.
Template: boxbackup-client/debconf Type: boolean Default: true _Description: Should the BoxBackup client be configured automatically? The package configuration scripts can create the configuration files for the BoxBackup client. . You should choose this option if you are not familiar with BoxBackup's configuration options. . Please read the /usr/share/doc/boxbackup-client/README.Debian for details about the configuration of the BoxBackup client. Template: boxbackup-client/backupMode Type: select __Choices: lazy, snapshot _Description: Run mode for the BoxBackup client: The BoxBackup client supports two modes of backup: . In the 'lazy' mode, the backup daemon will regularly scan the file system searching for modified files. It will then upload the files older than a specified age to the backup server. . In the 'snapshot' mode the backup will be explicitly run at regular intervals. A cron file (/etc/cron.d/boxbackup-client) is provided with the package and should be adapted to suit your needs. Template: boxbackup-client/accountNumber Type: string _Description: Account number for this node on the backup server: The administrator of the BoxBackup server should have assigned this client a hexadecimal account number. . If no account number has been assigned yet, leave this field blank and configure it later by running 'dpkg-reconfigure boxbackup-client' as root. Template: boxbackup-client/incorrectAccountNumber Type: error _Description: Invalid account number The account number must be a hexadecimal number (such as 1F04 or 4500). Template: boxbackup-client/backupServer Type: string _Description: Fully qualified domain name of the backup server: Please enter the fully qualified domain name of the BoxBackup server which your client will use. . The client will connect to the server on TCP port 2201. Template: boxbackup-client/backupDirs Type: string _Description: List of directories to backup: Please give a space-separated list of directories to be backed up onto the remote server. . Those directories should not contain mounted file systems at any level in their subdirectories. Template: boxbackup-client/incorrectDirectories Type: error _Description: Invalid path name The path names to the directories must be absolute path names, separated by spaces. . For example: /home/myaccount /etc/ Template: boxbackup-client/UpdateStoreInterval Type: string Default: 3600 _Description: Interval (in seconds) between directory scans: BoxBackup regularly scans the selected directories, looking for modified files. . Please choose the scan interval in seconds. Template: boxbackup-client/MinimumFileAge Type: string Default: 21600 _Description: Minimum time to wait (in seconds) before uploading a file: A file will be uploaded to the server only after a certain time after its last modification. . Low interval values will trigger frequent uploads to the server and more revisions being created with older revisions being removed earlier. Template: boxbackup-client/MaxUploadWait Type: string Default: 86400 _Description: Maximum time to wait (in seconds) before uploading a file: Frequently modified files are likely to never get uploaded if they never reach the minimum wait time. . Please enter the maximum time to reach before the upload of a modified file to the server is enforced. Template: boxbackup-client/IncorrectNumber Type: error _Description: Invalid time entered Please enter a non null integer value. Template: boxbackup-client/notifyMail Type: string Default: root _Description: Recipient for alert notifications: The BoxBackup client sends alert notifications when a problem occurs during the backup. . Please enter either a local user name (for example 'root') or an email address (for example 'email@example.com'). Template: boxbackup-client/generateCertificate Type: boolean Default: true _Description: Generate the client private key and X.509 certificate request? The BoxBackup client needs an RSA private key and the corresponding X.509 certificate to authenticate itself with the server. . Both can be generated automatically. You will need to send the certificate request to the BoxBackup server administrator who will sign it and send it back to you along with the server's Certification Authority certificate. . These files should be copied into BoxBackup's configuration directory. The file names to use are given in the /etc/boxbackup/bbackupd.conf file.
Template: boxbackup-server/debconf Type: boolean Default: true _Description: Should BoxBackup be configured automatically? The package configuration scripts can create the configuration files for the BoxBackup server. . You should choose this option if you are not familiar with BoxBackup's configuration options. The configuration can be done manually with the 'raidfile-config' and 'bbstored-config' scripts. . The server will not start if it is not configured. In all cases, reading the /usr/share/doc/boxbackup-server/README.Debian is recommended. Template: boxbackup-server/raidDirectories Type: string _Description: Location of the RAID directories: Please choose the location for the three RAID file directories. . To enable RAID, the directory names should be a space-separated list of three partitions, each on different physical hard drives (for example: '/raid/0.0 /raid/0.1 /raid/0.2'). . If you don't want to enable RAID, just specify the path to one directory where the backups will be stored (for example, /usr/local/lib/boxbackup). . These directories will be created if they do not exist. Template: boxbackup-server/incorrectDirectories Type: error _Description: Invalid path names The path names to the directories must be absolute path names, separated by spaces. . For example: /raid/0.0 /raid/0.1 /raid/0.2 Template: boxbackup-server/raidBlockSize Type: string Default: 4096 _Description: Block size for the userland RAID system: BoxBackup uses userland RAID techniques. . Please choose the block size to use for the storage. For maximum efficiency, you should choose the block size of the underlying filesystem (which can be displayed with the 'tune2fs -l' command). . This value should be set even if you don't plan to use RAID. Template: boxbackup-server/generateCertificate Type: boolean Default: true _Description: Generate a server private key and X.509 certificate request? The BoxBackup server needs an RSA private key and the corresponding X.509 certificate to perform client-server authentication and communication encryption. . Both can be generated automatically. You will need to sign the certificate with your root CA (see the boxbackup-utils package) and put this signed certificate and the root CA certificate in the configuration folder. Template: boxbackup-server/incorrectBlocksize Type: error _Description: Invalid block size The block size must be a power of two (e.g. 1024 or 4096).
