Re: xsp templates

So, two things, I guess:
1) How should I rewrite the language of the templates to suck less? The

(rather than copy-pasting templates)?
I am the/(an)other native german with difficulties in comprehension -
currently contributing to debian by doing translations, not being a
DD. Perhaps this copy from a private mail is helpful:
However, experience shows that a review mixed with a running
call for translations often gives confusion as a result.
So I suggest to provide reviewed templates when this translation
update round has finished.
I remember reviews on debian-l10-english less formal than described in
http://wiki.debian.org/I18n/SmithReviewProject. The requests for reviews
sometimes came from people prior to packaging software.
Perhaps unbureaucratic advice from native speakers (with linguistic
education) will follow soon.
