I see lines like "windows_en" and "windows_de" in recent gettor commits. Great.

At the same time, we get mail to tor-assistants with lines like "tor-browser-bundle+fa". They're confused, since you're supposed to mail gettor+fa to specify your language. But even so, we should accept + as well as _ for the language specifier.

Keywords like "windows_en" and "windows_de" are the *internal* format GetTor uses to know what he needs to send out. This isn't advertised anywhere. After parsing emails, GetTor adds a _{language code} to each package in order to match the corresponding configured answer package. Users should never use this directly, but always use the typical "gettor+fa@tpo", "gettor+de@tpo" address format to request the language they want.

GetTor doesn't react to package requests with a "package+{language code}" in the body of the email. It could be discussed whether we should add such a feature. We had a similar feature like this once, where users could say "tor-browser-bundle" in one line of their email and then in another line "de" to request a specific language package. We got rid of that feature because we thought too many options confuse users. However, I'm not a fan of adding every other wrong usage example by a handful of users as a new GetTor feature. Rather I'm a fan of improving the help texts to a point where users actually use GetTor the way its meant to be used. I'm open for suggestions here.

Closing 6 years old ticket. For what it's worth, gettor now handles +, which is defined in postfix configuration.
