Lintian Reports

E untranslatable-debconf-templates

All reports of untranslatable-debconf-templates for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package seems to be using debconf templates, but some descriptions are not translatable. You should prepend an underscore before every translatable field, as described in po-debconf(7). This may mean that translators weren't properly warned about new strings.

Translators may be notified of changes using podebconf-report-po, for example:

     podebconf-report-po --call --withtranslators --deadline="+10 days" \

If the field is not intended for users to see, ensure the first line of the description contains "for internal use".

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 3.9.1 (Prompting in maintainer scripts) for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: possible
