Hi folks,

I wonder why nobody has not complained yet about the hard-coded Churro 
Up to now there are references to ddtp.debian.net in the DDTP/DDTSS code 
definitely three, perhaps up to five side effects:

  * Descriptions with prior translations such as (1) list
    "# other Descriptions of the syslinux package with a translation in de:"
    with references to ddtp.debian.net.
  * In (1) the "information about previous translation" form is empty.
  * The mail interface sends responses with links to ddtp.debian.net.

There are two more issues that might by related, but are less obvious:

  * The translation statistics at (2) pretend that at present there are no
    active translations.
  * The generation of the Translation-xx files (eg at (3)) seems to be 
    with regard to retranslations. Commits via DDTSS/mail propagate to
    next day's Translation-xx, unchanged descriptions for new package
    versions do not. One example: tzdata. For some reason one gets an
    up to date (German) translation in the package search (4) and the
    DDTP database (5), but »grep 'Package: tzdata' Translation-de« on
    my local copy of Translation-de fails.

Kind regards,
