Please do so, and Cc: adduser at packages.debian.org.

We experienced the problem that in the adduser packages, the po files
_all_ are regenerated on _every_ build which generates a tremendous
amount of noise in the svn repository. I'd rather have outdated po
files than having that kind of noise in the repository. Why are all po
files regenerated on every build?
