Bug Description

As a follow up to bug #446277, I'd like to request the addition of the libapt-pkg4.11 and libapt-inst1.3 packages to the pkstriptranslations blacklist, as these packages started to ship apt templates recently.
As the version numbers in these packages tend to change, only the names should be added to make it future proof.

Why do we need to do this? Blacklisting would mean that apt packages will ship all *.po files right in the .deb, as opposed to "through langpacks". This will stop us being able to deliver updated translations, and we'd install unnecessary translations, too.

For the same reason we do this blacklisting thing at all: to deliver translations that are going to be visible at install time.

OK, fair enough. Merged and uploaded, will go in after b2 freeze.

Hm, this was merged for some time into lp:ubuntu/pkgbinarymangler, but the current apt packages still do not contain translations.
Are you sure that it was merged into the correct branch and it was deployed correctly?

Yes, just checked apt-get source pkgbinarymangler.

It's a conffile, so it might be that upgrading it on the buildds kept
the old one. I just filed an RT to have them updated, thanks for
pointing out!
