[Debian-l10n-devel] (forw) Lisa, if you don't like your job you don't strike. You just go in every day and do it really half-assed. That's the American way.

Is there any public record what kind of help is needed?  I really would
love to put some (admittedly small) effort into this to finally make DDTP
an official service.  IMHO a quite good chance for coming together would
be here:

Definitely!  I admit I might be to less informed because not reading
i18n list but if I were a member of i18n team I would start with some
announcement on d-d-a giving a status update and the suggest a sprint.

IMHO we urgently need to get churro replaced by some virtual machine
that can be maintained by more than one person and Thomas Giorand was
offering such machinges at gplhost.com.  Perhaps this might be some
intermediate step before we finally can go to debian.org ... depending
on how long this might last.

To rephrase my question whether it might make sense to change the links
on the Blends pages:  ddtp.debian.ORG *was* working before (probably by
just redirecting).  Whom do you think I should ask whether at least
*this* service can be put into action again.  Just switching off a
machine because you *think* it is not used is not good.  Should I just
send this question to debian-admin at lists.debian.org or was this question
just asked.  A search for "site:lists.debian.org/debian-admin ddtp" so
should I address my question to this list (and cc debian-i18n at l.d.o) or
do you have any better reference to give me some reasonable way to

Kind regards
