Bug#428786: gnome-applets: General update after the debconf review process

Dear Debian maintainer,

On Sunday, May 27, 2007, I sent you a notification about the beginning of a review
action on debconf templates for gnome-applets.

Then, I sent you a bug report with rewritten templates and annoucing
the beginning of the second phase of this action: call for translation

Translators have been working hard and here is now the result of their efforts.

Please consider using it EVEN if you committed files to your
development tree as long as they were reported.

The attached tarball contains:

- debian/changelog with the list of changes
- debian/control with rewrites of packages' descriptions
- debian/<templates> with all the rewritten templates file(s)
- debian/po/*.po with all PO files (existing ones and new ones)

As said, please use *at least* the PO files as provided here,
preferrably over those sent by translators in their bug reports. All
of them have been checked and reformatted. In some cases, formatting
errors have been corrected.

The patch-nopo file contains a patch for the templates and control file(s).

Please note that this patch applies to the templates and control
file(s) of your package as of Sunday, May 27, 2007. If your package was updated
in the meantime, I may have updated my reference copy....but I also
may have missed that. This is indeed why I suggested you do not
modified such files while the review process was running,

It is now safe to upload a new package version with these changes.

Please notify me of your intents with regards to this. 

There is of course no hurry to update your package but feel free to
contact me in case you would need sponsoring or any other action to
fix this.

 Template: gnome-applets/cpufreq_SUID_bit
 Type: boolean
 Default: false
-_Description: Install cpufreq-selector with SUID root?
- You have the option of installing a component of the CPU Frequency Scaling
- Monitor (cpufreq-selector) with the SUID bit set.
+_Description: Should cpufreq-selector run with root privileges?
+ The 'cpufreq-selector' program, part of the CPU Frequency
+ Scaling Monitor, can be set up to use superuser privileges when
+ it is run ('SUID root').
- If you make cpufreq-selector SUID, any user can then set the CPU's clock
- frequency without needing any additional privileges. This could, however,
- potentially allow it to be used during a security attack on your computer. If
- in doubt, it is suggested that you install it without SUID.
+ If you choose this option, any ordinary user will have the power to
+ set the processor's clock frequency. However, this may also be
+ potentially exploitable in security attacks.
  The applet will continue to work if you choose to disable SUID for
- cpufreq-selector, but only for monitoring the CPU clock frequency. You may
- need to restart this applet before this decision takes effect.

- If you change your mind later, run "dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets"
+ If in doubt, accept the default of no SUID root. To change this
+ setting later, run 'dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets'.
