ATM, I absolutely cannot say yes or no. We can certainly upload a new
languagechooser, but the initrd's have been built already so using it
means that we make the whole release process slip by a few days.
The decision has to be made by Joey, but he's currently sleeping, I
So, my proposal is the following:
-commit the changes you think are needed to languagechooser un trunk
-of some are needed to base-cofnig, commit them to its trunk (NOT to
the sarge branch)
TEST all that damn thing. Possibly before THIS EVENING 10/8 18:00 UTC
If this is OK and if Joey is OK, I'll upload a new languagechooser
today around 18:00UTC.
But I won't upload something which is not tested.
And, even if I upload a new languagechooser, I don't know if it's
worth delaying the whole release. OK, Russian is broken, I'm deeply
sad for this....but if I understand correctly, restarting the whole
process may mean up to one week delay. So you'll understand the
decision will be taken by considering all this.
