As I mentioned in
<https://lists.debian.org/debian-dpkg/2014/05/msg00010.html>, in
principle I should have stopped doing mass string changes two months
before the freeze. I'm not aware of any such change that might have
slipped into 1.17.14, but maybe I missed some. Supposedly the string
changes there were for new features and similar.

The string freeze would still be two weeks before the freeze, but I
realize it might be too tight? Because dpkg will require 10 days
before the freeze to migrate, hmmm.

Probably some more, but if there's any string change, it should be
pretty targetted and specific. No general text rewrites and similar,
or string cleanups.

I guess, I'll be preparing a CfT soon, so that translators do have
time to get ready, even if few more strings might change during the
coming 1/2 weeks.
