Verybody can stop the server to send this mails. And I send a command to the server and it will not send notifications on this packages: base-passwd, doc-central, dpkg, dpkg-dev, dpkg-doc, exuberant-ctags, fdflush ipmi-control, kernel-patch-ipmi-kcs, ksymoops, ldap-gateways ldap-utils, libldap2, libldap2-dev, lsb-release, modutils slapd, strace, tftp-hpa, tftpd-hpa, varmon, vim, vim-gtk vim-perl vim-python, vim-rt, vim-tcl, vim-tiny I hope I miss no of your package. If you have problemes, please mail me. Thanks and sorry. 2.) Yes, we translator have a lot of work. But this two or three translation systems, are not the real problem. We have already a beta web interface but we need cgi's and CVS on a debian machine. We now waiting for debian-admin. Finally I will wait now for a real solution and maybe I make some hacks to test and use this translations in the meantime. But please do me a favour: Before the dpkg people start with codeing, please make a proposal and discuss this proposal in the mailings lists. Thanks.
