There are couple of lists dealing with language support in debian, and anyone
following them would have noticed what was needed to get his language in since
about a year now, or so.

Well, rc3 freeze was last monday. Just do your translation work, i didn't say
it was too late for sarge, just that it may be too late. There will most
assuredly be chance for updates before the etch release. As joeyh mentioned
there are about 10 or so language in the not yet 'in' group.

You are aware that the debian-installer development and translation has
undergone a huge amount of development during these last year and a half,
aren't you ? There where assuredly news about this enough from all side that
if you had cared, you would have noticed. The installer is a full new
development, so anything that pertained to the woody and previous installer
was mostly lost.

Anyway, this is off-topic, please take the discussion to debian-boot and/or
the appropriate language list (debian-(i|l)(10|18)n i think). Whole lot of
archive and coordination pages are available for you there.
