As part of the release process for Debian Installer, a string freeze

goal is currently a release at the very end of July.
Hmmm ... I planned to volunteer in a systematic wording review  of
the original en-version. Thus I believed, waiting until consolidation of
functional bugs and feature freeze will be the right moment to start
with text improvements.
Any comments on my plans? After a short vacation, I could start at 5th
august, and estimate 5-10 days.
To late, to step in? Is there a rough timeline, milestones? I think, the
side effects to translations would be minimal, because the meaning will
not change, only the wording. But from my last impression on d-i daily
2004-06-07 I estimate some hundred lines of patches.
 This means:
- spelling en_US
- unique use of punctuation
- consistant use of terms
- avoiding personal pronouns
- simpler sentences
- clear questions
