Hi David,

First of all, thanks for the explanations and the links.

While playing around with the changes that you proposed in your patch, I discovered the following (I used the package currently available in the repository of lucid): I only have to delete the following line from the setup command in setup.py in order to have the strings from the ui file merged into the POT template. 
('share/onboard/data', glob.glob('data/*.ui*')),

So it seems that the ui file is automatically merged in the POT template
only if it is also automatically picked up; it must not be explicitely
added to the package with a line in the setup command.

And now, there is not any difference anymore between creating the POT
template by using the "./setup.py build_i18n" command and the "dpkg-
buildpackage -b" commands. (In fact, the langpack.mk rule fixed the
problem only for "dpkg-buildpackage -b" and not for "./setup.py
build_i18n"; I thought that this difference should be solved through the
usage of a POTFILES.in file, but it turned out that the POTFILES.in file
is not necessary either in both cases. )

Tomorrow, I will try to understand why the setup.cfg file is not
necessary anymore, as your patch is suggesting.

Thanks again for all your help.
