Subject: Add additional translated Packages.gz files from DDTS
Date: Sat, 25 Aug 2001 01:40:35 +0200
Version: N/A; reported 2001-08-25
Severity: wishlist

Please add the translated Packages.gz files from the
Debian Description Translation Server
to the main archive (and to the mirrors)

This is an _additional_ Packages.gz file, used by modifing the
sources.list - example line:
deb de/sid main
will use the German Translation of the Packages.gz file.

Contact for DDTS is Michael Bramer <>

Currently only can be used with the translated Descriptions;
it would be great if i could use any mirror.

As this is an additional file, this will have NO influence on other
users, unless they modify their /etc/apt/sources.list accordingly.
