Re: [RFR] templates://apt-cacher-ng/{apt-cacher-ng.templates}

Quoting Eduard Bloch (edi@gmx.de):

I suggest using "__Choices" so that each choice becomes a separate
string in translation files.

> _Default: Create once

Having the synopsis use interrogative form goes against our usual
recommendations for select templates, where we try to standardize on
"opened prompts", ended with a colon.

In some cases....like this one, that makes the wording a little bit
more tricky.

Maybe something like:

_Description: Transparent requests source routing configuration method:

That makes a quite big pile of words but I can't come with somethign better..:-)

We generally recommend not using "NOTE:" "WARNING:" or such all-caps
stuff. Having the important remark on its own separatge paragraph is
often good enough to put light on the important information.

"by cache administrator" should probably be "by the cache administrator".
