It doesn't have to be you each time. I can take care of it (and will)!

Note that the current version of the nova (source) package already has
modifications that I had yesterday on the BTS (eg: change of the English
templates, and translations just sent by translators). My plan was to
ask for updates from those who sent translations already.

Unfortunately, this was part of RC bug fixing: I had to code the thing
to not ship /etc/nova/nova.conf as conffile, since it was edited by
debconf. And thought this was the correct moment to also add the
configuration for nova-compute-xen.

I knew I would break your work Christian, and I feel sorry about this,
but I take the responsibility for it, and will fix it by myself
accordingly. The only thing I need is the English text to be reviewed,
which has already started.

Thanks for your huge translation work in Debian,

Thomas Goirand (zigo)
