Shadow's manpages translation

Dear Debian German translators,

It seems that some German man pages are not the translations of the
current English man pages.  Can you have a look at it, and see if they
need an update?

There isn't the same number of paragraphs
The -s options is not documented.

The options are not documented
The current German translation is far smaller.

Can you provide an update as a bug to the shadow package, or indicate if
the man page is so outdated that it should be dropped (if it will mislead
users), or just add an indication that German users can read the more
up-to-date English man page with "man -L C <...>".

The French translation was handled with po4a, which permits to translate
the man pages using a PO file, and permits to ease future updates of the
translation).  You can have a look at the man/fr directory in the shadow
source package.  If you want to use po4a, don't hesitate to mail me for
any question you have (e.g. I can prepare you the po4a conf file, provide
the POT file, and fill it with the current translation).

There is an opportunity to include this update in Sarge.

Thanks in advance,
