But I guess we won't escape from it. That discussion should happen and a mistake we made for etch was not having it before the release was getting closer. My personal opinion is that we should activate a language when sublevel 1 is complete....while the final D-I release should only keep those languages that have *both* sublevels activated. This is more or less what we did for etch....even if the criteria for activating languages was not really precise. Activating early allows for more testing (until someone figures out how to make daily builds from packages built from the SVN and not from uploaded packages). One problem we have with new languages is the lack of real testing, because translations only reach the arhive when the packages are rebuilt, which only happens when a beta/RC release is planned. We really should try to improve this for lenny.
