Pastebinit update, translation needed

For a long time now people have been poking me on IRC/mail/IM to get an updated pastebinit released.
The pastebinit currently in Ubuntu shows some bug (piping data often fails), doesn’t support most of the newest pastebins and isn’t translated in more than 2 or 3 languages.

I fixed most of these bugs thanks to all the patches attached to the bug reports, I now just need to update the manpage with the new supported pastebins. But before I release version 0.11, I’d like to get as many supported languages as possible.

So if you like translating and want pastebinit to speak your language, all you need is a Launchpad account and go to: to translate it.
I’ll then export the .po from Launchpad and include them before releasing 0.11

    I guess I was running into bugs, I thought I was just not doing something right..
    Now it makes sense.

    I’m a proponent of including the new pastebinit in Ubuntu proper, on the CDs; I think it would make providing assistance to noobies a TON easier. I basically install it on every machine I admin.

    Great job, by the way, when it works it makes life a lot simpler.

    Would be awesome if you could add to the supported list

    I have an idea for a linux app similar to pastebinit, same concept, but for screenshots, command line driven(and GUI I guess) to take a screenshot and auto upload it to one of the free image hosts. This would be another great tool like pastebinit for linux help channels
