Where to translate tune2fs / e2fsprogs?

I signed up for the translation team... It's still not clear to me how to find and fix a translation error.

I found one in tune2fs, which I or any other native speaker could see the German translations and search for "Pr├╝fsumme" and check each containing sentence, this spelling error could easily be fixed.
Where is this translation maintained (Mint, Ubuntu, Debian,?) and whom to contact or where to find/search for the file?
I tried to email the author of the tune2fs man page as the given address has a German domain, but that address is no longer valid.

Would a "bug report" be the correct response? Unfortunately, I got this only after mending my linux mint partition after copying - something I don't like to play around with to reproduce. Other devices did not come up with a warning.

tune2fs comes from the package e2fsprogs, which comes from the Ubuntu package base repository. Translations for Ubuntu can be improved through Ubuntu's launchpad but in general I think it's better to improve translations in the project itself. Delving through the commit messages on the e2fsprogs' code I find translations for e2fsprogs are done here: https://translationproject.org/domain/e2fsprogs.html. The German translation team is here: https://translationproject.org/team/de.html. I suggest you read guidelines on those two pages, and information for translators at https://translationproject.org/html/translators.html, and then contact the German translation team to get involved.

Hats off to you for wanting to help improve translations!
