Next dpkg release should be targetting experimental this week, I've
still to finish some last changes but we'll be announcing the upload in
few days (at most).
Regarding the release targetting squeeze, that depends when Debian
freezes the base system, it was supposed to be around this month but
it seems this will get delayed, I cannot give you exact dates. But
anyway, even if dpkg is frozen the release team will most certainly
accept updates with translation changes as they have done in the past
so it's safe to say you still have several months, no need to rush yet.
We'll also be calling for translations once the code has stabilized a
bit more and we are closer to the Debian release.
