Boot-floppies translation status

Reçu sur debian-i18n@l.d.o
Il me semble que le manuel est traduit par Jérôme, mais il faudrait que
dbootstrap soit aussi pris en charge. Si Jérôme ne veut pas s'en charger,
y-a-t'il des volontaires ?


  The release of Debian 3.0 is comming soon. I just checked the status of 
  translations of the boot-floppies. Quite a few languages are far from up to 
  Below are the statistics from the .po-files of the dbootstrap program (the 
  menu driven Debian installation program)

  Based on the numbers above, I would suggest removing sk and it immediatly 
  from the internationalised boot floppies in any case, since two thirds of the 
  strings will appear in english anyway. (Or better, of course, update these 
  Even the ja and pl users must find it very messy to use the mixed language 
  interface, and prefer to go with the english one for now.
  Regarding the syslinux boot screens, the translations of e.g. debian.txt on 
  the rescue floppy have only been touched by a few languages since the 
  original english one was edited at June 5., namlely:
  sv, ko, de, gl and da.
  The figure is even worse for the install manual. *No* languages but fr, de 
  and da have touched welcome.sgml since February!
  I hope this can encourage other translators to update the support for their 
  languages. Some may simply have waited for the next release to come closer 
  before doing this. Well, it seems it is just around the corner now!
  To get the latest boot-floppies from the CVS, (beware, it's 41 megabytes) do:
     export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-boot
     cvs login
      ----  (You will be prompted for a password -- just hit `Enter'.)
     cvs update
  You will find relevant information in the file README-Translators.
