[RFR] templates://smstools/{templates}



Please find, for review, the debconf templates of smstools.

This review will last from Monday, June 11, 2007 to Thursday, June 21, 2007.

Please send reviews as unified diffs (diff -u) against the original
files. Comments about your proposed changes will be appreciated.

Your review should be sent as an answer to this mail.

When appropriate, I will send intermediate requests for review, with
"[RFRn]" (n>=2) as a subject tag.

When we will reach a consensus, I send a "Last Chance For
Comments" mail with "[LCFC]" as a subject tag.

Finally, the reviewed templates will be sent to the package maintainer
as a bug report, and a mail will be sent to this list with "[BTS]" as
a subject tag.

Most rationale has been already given in the discussion that happened
before I sent the ITR.
