- the arch issue raised by Frans was not the object of my post. Also, not all points are invalid/reiterated, just the ones iterated here. Thanks Frans.
- add a note that there is an image that proves that .mo endianness is irelevant - usefull for readers that might miss that
While looking at Neil Williams' talk(hi-res/lo-res) from FOSDEM about cross building and tdebs I was STUNNED about the many (not all, thanks Frans) points that were reiterated during that talk when there were already answered.
Well, I guess you have to repeat yourself a lot to get your ideas through to the other side. So, let's do that.
All (except the first) of the following have been already answered one way or another on the TDebs wiki page.
Q: .mo files are arch independent or not? Neil asks again on his blog.
A: It doesn't matter, does it?
(there is a picture here which proves my point, if you can't see it, click here).

Q: The packages file will explode
A: No, that's addressed.
Q: How do you select languages?
A: Simply use what we have and expand on that.
Q: Do tdebs support anything else than gettext?
