Re: Translation updates for grub-installer


Not trying to put words in Steve's mouth of course, but I'll hazard a
guess anyway:

Steve also maintains GRUB packages, and grub2 needed some updates as well,
e.g. this one I spotted on the French list while I was wondering whether
work had started there:

So maybe the same process has been used for grub-installer…

OK, thanks!

I had a few other packages on my radar:

  [ Updated translations in ./packages/choose-mirror ]
  * Polish (pl.po) by Matthaiks

  [ Updated translations in ./packages/partman-efi ]
  * Polish (pl.po) by Matthaiks

  [ Updated translations in ./packages/s390-netdevice ]
  * Norwegian Nynorsk (nn.po) by Kjetil Sørlund

  [ Updated translations in ./packages/s390-dasd ]
  * Norwegian Bokmal (nb.po) by Kjetil Sørlund
  * Norwegian Nynorsk (nn.po) by Kjetil Sørlund

which I planned on checking, possibly uploading and unblocking before RC
3, but I didn't check actual contents there (yet).
