Dear maintainer of shaper and Debian translators,
On 08 Oct 2006 I sent a notice to the maintainer of the shaper Debian
package, mentioning the status of at least one old po-debconf translation
update in the BTS (bug #280995).
I announced the intent to build and possibly upload a non-maintainer upload
for this package in order to fix this long-time pending localization
bug as well as all other pending translations.
The package maintainer did not respond in a week so I will proceed with the
The package is currently translated to: cs de es fr it pt_BR ru sv vi
The following translations are incomplete: es
(even after applying pending l10n bugs, of course)
If you did any of the, currently incomplete, translations you will get a
copy of this announcement BCC'ed to you. Please review the translation.
Other translators also have the opportunity to create new translations for
this package. Once completed, please send them directly to me so I can
incorporate them into the package being built.
The deadline for receiving updates and new translations is 22 Oct 2006.
If you are not in time you can always send your translation to the BTS.
You can download the pot, and any po, files from:
If the maintainer objects to this process I will immediately abort my NMU
and send him/her all updates I receive.
Otherwise the following will happen (or already has):
08 Oct 2006 : send the first intent to NMU notice to
the package maintainer.
15 Oct 2006 : post a NMU announcement to debian-i18n with you
22 Oct 2006 : deadline for receiving translation updates
24 Oct 2006 : build the package and upload it to DELAYED/2-day
send the NMU patch to the BTS
26 Oct 2006 : NMU uploaded to incoming
27 Oct 2006 : NMU enters unstable
Thanks for your efforts and time.
