I was preparing the new package with changes, and I noticed that
now there's a new lintian warning (previously not there):

W: open-iscsi: too-long-extended-description-in-templates open-iscsi/remove_even_with_active_sessions

This was not there with the original (unreviewed) templates
because there the commands were not split into separate
paragraphs. But instead of 20 lines the message is now 23 lines
long. Sorry I didn't catch that earlier, I just didn't try to
build a package with the new templates before today (in order
to wait for all translations to be complete).

Unfortunately, any change to that template would require all of
the translators again and since the message will only appear if
the administrator does something stupid, i.e. tries to remove
the package while it's still in use, I'm of a mind to simply
override the warning; I see this message more like a last-ditch
effort to prevent something dangerous from happening, but I
would hope that it actually never gets shown...

But before I override the warning, I'd like to ask your opinion
first, though. Would you agree that it's Ok to override it?
