I suspect that being able to read logs is much more important for
general bug wranglers like Jeroen than for the developers who only
deal with bugs for a small set of packages. Although I find
non-English logs annoying, they are usually good enough for me to find
the problem when dealing with bugs in a package with which I am
already familiar. However, I would likely be lost if I needed to help
a user who had posted a log in a language that I did not understand
for a package that I knew little about.
