You did? I'm sorry, I must've missed it.

Where did de-po.save come from?

According to <http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-manual/ubuntu-manual/lucid-e2/files/head:/po/>,
there should be a de.po file in the repository.

Aha. You have the maverick branch, not the lucid-e2 branch.  (The
translatorcredits environment is brand new in the maverick branch, so
the lucid-e2 translation system doesn't know about it.)

Running 'bzr info' should confirm which branch you're using.

To acquire the lucid-e2 branch, you can run 'bzr branch
lp:ubuntu-manual/lucid-e2'.  Within the new lucid-e2 directory, you
can try running 'make ubuntu-manual-de.pdf' again.

I just compiled ubuntu-manual-de.pdf here (for the lucid-e2 branch)
and it generated the PDF. There are some errors that need be fixed,
however.  (You can see the errors by looking in ubuntu-manual-de.pdf
for lines that start with !.)

The old Quickshot server isn't working properly at the moment.  We're
working to move everything over to the new Quickshot server (and
you'll be able to use the new Quickshot program, too).
