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 anyway. > I pissed off all translators to SUBSCRIBE and READ debian-i18n to > avoid me to send them mails individually for getting translation > updates. 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.
