Re: CVS checkout command for the Debian Installer translations

Thanks Christian:

I was out of comission for the last couple of weeks. I will do that in the next day or so.

Christian, please do provide us with a list of the priorities here if
you don't mind.

From memory:

cdebconf languagechooser countrychooser+iso-codes (in 2nd stage-->all countries names) choose-mirror ddetect netcfg partman partman-basicfilesystems partman-ext3 partman-auto base-installer grub-installer

With these, IIRC, you cover a default high prority i386 install

iso-codes is important because as soon as we will have an Arabic
translations for the iso_3166 file, we will have a "short" country
list after choosing Arabic at very first screen.

Countrychooser first display users all countries for which a valid
locale exists in the given language.

For instance, for Arabic, you will have about 10 countries,
IIRC....indeed all those for which an ar_XX locale exists in Debian

Translating iso-3166 is quite boring because you have to translate 240
country names in your language, which may be tricky (and sometimes
highly politically difficult). I was lucky that French names are

After the above mentioned packages, I would mention:

base-config (2nd stage)
shadow debconf templates (2nd stage)


all -installer packages (start with yaboot)
...all others..:-)

As you may see, what we call 2nd stage is sometimes artificial and not always related to priority. I prefer having the shadow templates translated (those asking for the root password) than the clumsy netdevice templates (Ethernet cards for s390).
