This will not cause any trouble to the infrastructure.
But I have no idea whether the new PO files have a lot of strings in
common with the old PO file.

If you want to try it, the easiest way is probably to copy the old
release-notes.fi.po onto each of the current po files, and then ask the
makefile to update the Finish PO files.

This should be run on Lenny:

mkdir fi
for p in about.po issues.po old-stuff.po upgrading.po installing.po moreinfo.po release-notes.po whats-new.po; do cp release-notes.fi.po fi/$p; done
make updatepo LINGUA=fi

If you have no Lenny available conveniently, I can populate the fi/
directory for you.

Best Regards,
