I was mostly asking about the changes in the new patch, and not about the
Debian changes. The diff even had the wrong version number, as it was based
on http://people.debian.org/~jak/debian/stable/, where I keep some patches
and backports for stable i386.

So, should I come back when we are going to do Lenny and a half? I was just
asking now because I could forget it when Lenny and a half starts. But if
we are going to freeze Squeeze in December, Lenny and a half must either
happen within in the next months or stopped.

Better a missing translation than a missing trash (or more or less missing,
as the files are still moved to the trash, but you can not delete them
afterwards). I also don't know which programs really use these strings.

You could add translations for almost all languages by copying the msgstr
for Ext3 and replace it with ext4. And the ext4dev and btrfs parts could
be removed from the patch, as I don't think anybody uses them.
