Hmmm, that many? That's already quite a lot but that seems feasible as long as provided patches do provide *good quality* debconf prompts: - correct English - using the recommended writign style (see DevRef....which we will probably enhance during the etch->leny release cycle, as I intend to work on the wording of debconf templates for all packages that already use debconf - and, of course, translation from the beginning if possible I'm still puzzled by the number of package you announce, Lucas.
