Re: Bug#228486: Apology to german users required in the release notes

A) Using the same quotes as in english, i.e., ""

Once again, the english quotes are also stupid:
mv -iv foo bar
`foo' -> `bar'

It is not clear why german users are the only ones who need an "apology"
because they get stupid-looking quotes. English-speaking users have been
living with the problem for years.

Hence the appology is needed, since -- given Debians history -- users of
stable employing a german locale will experience the (unambiguously
perceived as ugly) quotes for the years to come.

Just like people employing an english locale!
