Sorry, I missed your original message (I mostly overread
aptitude-devel from the summary of topics in mutt).

Don't worry too much about help.txt translation. There are few of
these and the fact that it is not gettext'ed doesn't help anyway.

And the overall translation status of aptitude is not great anyway
(because this is a giant work for all of us)...so a few more fuzzy
string in the manpage translation shouldn't scare you..:-)
