       debconf-updatepo - update PO files about debconf templates

       debconf-updatepo [-v] [-h] [--podir=DIR] [--skip-pot] [--skip-merge]

       This program reads po/POTFILES.in to determine which master files need
       to be processed, then extracts new gettext strings into
       po/templates.pot and updates all po/*.po files.	This script can be
       called either in the top-level directory, or in the debian or debian/po
       subdirectories.	It is run by developer and/or translator to update PO
       files when the English text is modified in templates files.

       -h, --help
	   Display a usage summary and exit.

       -v, --verbose
	   Process in verbose mode.

	   Set directory for PO files.	By default PO files are searched in
	   debian/po, po and ../po directories in that order.

	   Do not generate a new po/templates.pot file.

	   Do not merge existing PO files with po/templates.pot.

	   Set the email address that will be specified in the POTs Report-
	   Msgid-Bugs-To field.

	   By default, this field is set to @package.debian.org.

	   It is intended for the maintainers of Debian based distributions,
	   and should be used in the following cases:

	   o   The package is not present in Debian (and thus the
	       @packages.debian.org address does not exist).

	   o   The maintainer made significant changes in the debconf
	       templates (or added templates to a Debian package without
	       templates), and does not want to bother the Debian maintainer
	       with bug reports that wont be relevant for the Debian

	   The default address is preferred to avoid corrections in the Debian
	   based distribution without a notification to the Debian maintainer.
