Package: manpages-de
Version: 1.2-1
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-l10n-german@lists.debian.org

There have been several releases of the english (and corresponding
french) man pages. However, the German ones last update was on October
(unfortunately it is difficult to obtain the version the German
translation is based on from debian/changelog.debian).

Since the French ones are kept in sync, I suppose a freeze exception
for the German ones might be granted as well.

For the lates update, see e.g. the following links:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01114.html
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01192.html
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01193.html
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01245.html

Thanks

As I understand things, perhaps manpages-de would be in sync without
#692595.
I filed it very close to the date freeze exceptions became harder.

My impression with former releases of manpages-de was that the number of
reviewed changes and (also reviewed) new translations increased with every
release. May be that I'm too pessimistic: I think manpages-de based on 3.44
won't find their way into Wheezy. Thus I think that it is work that can be
postponed past the release.

I'm aware that you, Chris and Tobias did a lot of work in the
repository. And
that there are several translations I've to work on before they can be
tagged
<DONE>. My excuses are: the last paragraph and DDTP.

Since the French ones are kept in sync, I suppose a freeze exception
for the German ones might be granted as well.



As can be read in #69259, the french translation was ahead the German one
because the French team follows upstream git. And I'm afraid, there are more
contributors.

For the lates update, see e.g. the following links:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01114.html
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01192.html
https://lists.debian.org/debian-rel...01193.html

Well, I started my response prior to reading the links above. And I did not
check manpages-de git yet.

What I found in the last archive link (1245):

manpages-fr (3.44d1p1-1) unstable; urgency=low

* New release, based on manpages 3.44-1 and perkamon 3.44-1:
+ new manpages: getauxval.3 secure_getenv.3
* Translate debian specific modifications:
+ motd.5 updated and motd.tail removed: due to new behaviour of
sysvinit
2.88dsf-24
+ fputs.3: missing space in putc(c,stdout)
+ resolv.conf.5: Document IPv6 format for nameserver
+ stat.2: Clarify description of EOVERFLOW error


If I understand things right, the French argumentation is:
- manpages 3.44 fixes important errors -> unblock
- manpages-fr is in sync -> unblock
- for release team's convinience we provide a stripped down (deb)diff

So to get an exception somebody would have to make sure that the relevant
manpages are present and strip down the debdiff. Who has spare time
before the
release?

Can the German team / the maintainer afford the effort at present?
