The problem spotted in #605748 is that, when upgrading from Lenny to
Squeeze, priority at least high debconf questions are showed and those
questions are not translated (and not even reveiewed according to the
source code). I hope (and ask with this message) if the release team
would consider an unblock to fix this issue that would permit non
English reader to upgrade smoothly their system (and give the
opportunity to propose English reader some improved messages).

I fail to find any former discussion about grub2 last month in the
email@example.com archive and also fail to find an unblock request,
so I don't know if you already discussed those other issues via other
If the other changes happens not to be acceptable, it could always be an
option to release an update based on the 1.98+20100804-8 current Squeeze
version fixing only #605748 (and following translations).

Of course, I do believe that Justin addressed his first review to
#605748 <[🔎] 20101203093416.GA31125@xibalba.demon.co.uk> so you can already
comment on his review. Please let us know if you have any objection to
this proposal, so we could take it as a base for the translation round.
If there is no problem in the proposed templates meaning, and if any
further changes will only provide linguistics improvement, we may handle
unfuzzing translation if any other change happen in the next five days.

Sure, so if you agree with Justin last proposal, I will handle a short
round of translation update (five days, in order to provide an updated
package in Sid as soon as 1.98+20100804-10 reaches testing if it is
accepted by the release team). Please let me know if you agree.
