But he still ignored parts of it and thinks you are responsible for it.
--keyword=W_ is e.g. missing in po/Makevars which makes all
translations outdated. I reported it already twice (or even more) during
the last weeks.

Also my updated translation (approximately 10 days old) can still not be
found in the repository whereas other translations were added. Strange.

$ hg clone hg://hg.debian.org/aptitude/debian-upstream
abort: repository hg://hg.debian.org/aptitude/debian-upstream not found!

Same for the other URL! Adapting the URL according to
http://hg.debian.org/hg/aptitude/head as mentioned in
works indeed and also creates a debian/ directory but it also duplicates
the source code!

Let me ask again: If the devolopment happens in
http://hg.debian.org/hg/aptitude/head which misses a debian/ directory
where can I find this single directory?

Please fix it also for Makevars. I wonder that you claim that you cannot
reproduce it. Look into po/aptitude.pot which was last updated by you and
search for "Unrecognized tasks". You will not find it!
I attached another (current) patch. Please apply. If there are two
people responsible for it I would expect it is faster committed but the
opposite is true!?

PS: Please check the added translator comments. It was necessary to move
one to get it also visible in PO files.

Also "make check" even failed to compile! This should not happen. Even in
a development snapshot!
