I added permission to the group, you should be
able to backup and remove them, that will avoid unnecessary
downtime. We should add them to the SVN in a branch, just
as a reference, I can't think of a better way to backup
_and_ document it.

OK, no action should be required and it seems that
everything is pretty fine.

I don't read the changelogs yet, sorry, as soon as
I can get to it I will try to help you with tests, patches

Why? Can't we hack it to check the BTS and close

It seems very consistent for Portuguese, BTW, would
be possible to use pt_BR to avoid confusion with our fellow
Portuguese (but not Brazilian Portuguese) translators and
also allow them to use the robots?

Both are now disabled:
0 */12 * * * $HOME/bin/nmu-update
17 4 * * * /org/dl10n-stuff/bin/gen-testing testing
Thomas' crontab is still in place, but everything
is now commented, his account is now disabled.
This also means that the actual debian-l10n is
not going to be updated, so you probably would need to
move the new versions in place.

I agree with you.

rsnapshot can do incremental snapshot, saving
