Some brief notes from the Debconf 8 i18n meeting discussing Translation Debs (tdebs)

People involved

(add yourself if I forgot you):


Various constraints and desirable characteristics were discussed

Discussion noted that "Reducing bandwidth usage" by providing small, individual tdebs per package per architecture and "Avoiding archive bloat" were contradictory. Instead it was suggested that one .tdeb per source package would be provided, including all translations, and that dpkg class support should be added to allow filtering at install time.
