This is why I'm using a script for putting the correct dates in the
right place for my similar announcements..:-)

(please don't laugh with my deep shell programming skills. I know I
shouldn't fork sed 7 times....:-))

export DATEFMT="+%d %b %Y"


if [ "$1" != "" ]

	DAY01=`date "$DATEFMT" --date "7 days"`
	DAY02=`date "$DATEFMT" --date "10 days"`
	DAY03=`date "$DATEFMT" --date "12 days"`
	DAY04=`date "$DATEFMT" --date "14 days"`
	DAY05=`date "$DATEFMT" --date "15 days"`

blah blah.....

The schedule for the NMU (in case it happens, that is if you agree with
it or if I don't receive any answer in 7 days) is roughly the

-<DAY00>   : send this notice
-<DAY01>   : post a NMU announcement to debian-i18n with you
                (maintainer) CC'ed
-<DAY02>   : deadline for receiving translation updates
-<DAY03>   : build the package and upload it to DELAYED/2-day
                send the NMU patch to the BTS
-<DAY04>   : NMU uploaded to incoming
-<DAY05>   : NMU enters unstable

The patch for the NMU will then be sent to one of the l10n bugs so
that you may incorporate it to your development tree later.

I will then subscribe to the Package Tracking System for <package> and
