i really investigated this one and and asked people from #wikipedia and
it seems, that the german wikipedia lacks the exact equivalent for
'stub'. i don't know what to do in such a case. since all correct
translations don't make much sense according to [1]. my suggestion is to
use 'Rohbau'. Any objections from the german speaking community?

(i am excited to see, if this one gets a linebreak)

are you referring to Object Oriented Programming? i don't know, it's
just that i never ever heard someone using the word 'Nachricht' in that
context. i would like to hear other opinions.
