Locale::Po4a::NewsDebian - convert NEWS.Debian documents from/to PO files
The po4a (PO for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and more

areas where they were not expected like documentation.
Locale::Po4a::NewsDebian is a module to help the translation of the
NEWS.Debian files into other [human] languages. Those files are where
maintainer are supposed to write the important news about their package.
