Description Christian Rose 2000-12-30 03:08:56 UTC
This message from authconfig is way to long for easy translation. It is
almost impossible to spot changes! (I've found the changes now, yes, but I
had to examine it for a very long time to make sure there were no other
minor changes in this giant message).

My suggestion would be to split up the message in several messages, maybe
one for each group of options, and mark each of them for translation. That
would make maintaining the translation so much easier.
