Hmm, I was just about to send the call for translations. It's really
last minute.

OK, just to be sure, I'll extend the discussion time by 1 day..

We usually don't try *that* hard to be neutral..:-)

After all, the debconf templates are read by a humain and "we" talk to
that human by saying him|her "You should do this". That sounds acceptable.

Anyway, this is nearly out of the scope of these reviews that are
mostly meant to check the wording of descriptions not the Debianisms
in debian/control....though we sometimes catch some quirks like this

So, leaving it up to you to fix this...

I don't have a strong advice on other suggestions you made for the
package description. All of them make sense, imho.

My priority now are indeed the debconf templates and I suggest leaving
them as we reviewed them...just confirming that with you before
sending the call for translation updates.
