Hi Martin
I know it is difficult to see the ip address
but if you start translating one of the pending translations you can see the ip address in the history.


I have done that on the above

1458939172 fetched by
1458939173 processed from todo
1458986401 updated text by (ii)
1458988148 updated text by (MM)

its my ip address ( and it says fetched by

(the same address is on the rest if you start translating them).

The Danish problem seems related to Pure Data package descriptions.

Can you confirm you have the same ip address on one of the german package descriptions?

 How did you get the IP address?
 The German page has the same problem. At the time of writing there are  389 pending descriptions. As the "German team" actually is a one man  show this is very demotivating and I would love to see the pending queue  flushed as well.
 The descriptions are mostly from the bioinformatics, multimedia and 
 science fields. I'm afraid that there is an interested group within 
 Debian behind this »DoS attack«.
