[Python-modules-team] Intent to NMU libapache2-mod-python to fix pending po-debconf l10n bugs

Dear Debian maintainer,

The libapache2-mod-python Debian package, which you are the maintainer of, has
pending bug report(s) which include translation updates or fixes
for po-debconf, namely bug number 411235 (and maybe other similar bugs).

I have the intention, as part of a more general action of the Debian
i18n Task Force to build and possibly upload a non-maintainer upload
for libapache2-mod-python in order to fix this as well as all pending translations
for the debconf templates.

Such changes are always harmless, which explains why I safely consider
building NMU's for such issues even though they're obviously non critical.

However, letting l10n-related bugs sleep in the BTS is simply lowering the
chances that your package interaction with its users may be done in
something else than the English language.

The schedule for the NMU (in case it happens, that is if you agree with it
or if I don't receive any answer in 2 days) is roughly the following:

 05 Mar 2007   : send this notice
 08 Mar 2007   : build the package and upload it to DELAYED/0-day
                 send the NMU patch to the BTS

If you intent to upload yourself, I suggest waiting for two days
anyway as some translations could come in soon.

I will then subscribe to the Package Tracking System for libapache2-mod-python and
follow its life for 60 days after my NMU in order to fix any issue
potentially introduced by my upload.

Let me know, as soon as possible, if you have any kind of objection to this

If you'd rather do the fix yourself, I will of course leave the package
alone. Same if you have reasons not to do the update now.
