Re: [D-I] [RANT] Some translations seem abandoned

(replying to d-boot as this is a project reaction, not a translation one)

I really think you are overreacting here. This is not a major release and 
we specificly announced that translations were not guaranteed to go in

That is a really strong statement (and I'm afraid it's not completely 
clear to me what you intended to say here either).

IMHO any translation that is still around 90% or higher is in fairly good 
shape at this stage of Etch.
I would suggest giving translators some slack, maybe they're working on 
other translations or interests. There must be loads of packages in 
unstable having po-debconf or upstream translations that were neglected 
because of D-I in the run-up to Sarge. Maybe translators are catching up 
with those?

Translators may prefer to wait until things stabilize again in D-I before 
making a large effort to catch up.

The only ones that are really worrysome are the translations at 83% as 
that shows they've received no update at all 

Suggest we put something about translations possibly being partial in the 
release announcement.
