Perhaps it is time to formulate a test in a package README explaining
when a langauge get its own package, and when it will loose it?  I guess
it should be harder to gain a package than to loose one, as it take
longer to add a package than to remove it.

It would also give the active translators something to aim for and might
even improve morale. :)

Perhaps the criteria should be based on fraction translated (either text
volume/number of words or number of messages, I would recommend using
text volume), and also on duration without any translation activity.  It
is easier to understand that we keep a package with 15% translated where
there is active work going on with the translation, thank a package with
15% translated and no activity for several years.

Happy hacking
