[TAF] templates://apt-listchanges/{templates}

The apt-listchanges package introduced new or modified debconf
templates. This is the perfect moment for a review to help the package
maintainer following the general suggested writing style and track
down typos and errors in the use of English language.

If someone wants to pick up this review, please answer to this mail,
in the mailing list, with an [ITR] (Intent To Review) label.

The templates file is attached.

To propose the file you reviewed for peer review, please send a [RFR]
(Request For Review) mail with the reviewed file attached...then a few
days later, when no more contributions come, a summary mail with a
[LCFC] (Last Chance For Comments) label.

Finally, after no more comments coming to the LCFC mail, you can send
the reviewed templates file as a bug report against the package.

Then, please notify the list with a last mail using a [BTS] label
with the bug number.

Helping the package maintainer to deal with induced translation
updates at that moment will be nice. If you're not comfortable with
that part of the process, please hand it off to a translator.


Template: apt-listchanges/frontend
Type: select
__Choices: pager, gtk, browser, xterm-pager, xterm-browser, text, mail, none
Default: pager
_Description: Method for changes display:
 apt-listchanges can display package changes in a number of different
  pager         : use your preferred pager to display changes one page at
                  a time;
  gtk           : Display changes in a Gtk window;
  browser       : display HTML-formatted changes using a web browser;
  xterm-pager   : like pager, but in an xterm in the background;
  xterm-browser : like browser, but in an xterm in the background;
  text          : print changes to your terminal (without pausing);
  mail          : only send changes via mail;
  none          : do not run automatically from apt.
 This setting can be overridden by a command-line option or an environment
 variable.  Note that you can still send a copy via mail with all of the
 frontends except 'none'.

Template: apt-listchanges/email-address
Type: string
Default: root
_Description: E-mail Address(es) which will receive changes:
 apt-listchanges can email a copy of displayed changes.  Please enter
 the email address the changes should be sent to.
 Multiple addresses may be specified, delimited by commas.  Leave this
 empty if you do not want any email to be sent.

Template: apt-listchanges/confirm
Type: boolean
Default: false
_Description: Prompt for confirmation after displaying changes?
 After giving you a chance to read the list of changes, apt-listchanges
 can ask whether or not you would like to continue. This is useful when
 running from apt, as it gives you a chance to abort the upgrade if you see
 a change you do not want to apply (yet).
 This setting does not apply to the 'mail' or 'none' frontends, and can be
 overridden with a command line option.

Template: apt-listchanges/save-seen
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Should apt-listchanges skip changes that have already been seen?
 apt-listchanges has the capability to keep track of which changes
 have already been displayed, and to skip them in future
 invocations. This is useful, for example, when retrying an upgrade.

Template: apt-listchanges/which
Type: select
_Choices: news, both, changelogs
Default: news
_Description: Changes displayed with apt:
 Please choose which type of changes should be displayed with APT.
  news - important news items only
  both - both news and detailed changelogs
  changelogs - detailed changelogs only

Description: Display change history from .deb archives
 apt-listchanges is a tool to show what has been changed in a new
 version of a Debian package, as compared to the version currently
 installed on the system.  It does this by extracting the relevant
 entries from the Debian changelog file, and the NEWS.Debian file.
 It can be run on several .deb archives at a time to get a list of all
 of the changes that would be effected by installing or upgrading a
 group of packages.  It can be configured to do this automatically
 during upgrades using apt.
