Just to make sure there are no false expectations...
There most likely will be uploads including new translations for most 
components, but there is no guarantee. Also, we may start doing uploads 
for some packages sooner than the 2 weeks Christian mentioned above.

The basic reason for this is that the focus of the beta is to provide a 
base to test the new kernel and changes in d-i (and to check for possible 
regressions from the Sarge version), not to do a "real" release that is 
to be widely distributed and used.

Basically, any translations that are available at the moment we upload a 
component will be included, but, as Christian said there will be no last 
minute rush to include translations after that.

It is your choice as translators if you want to make the effort now or to 
work on the translations in your own tempo. Of course, keeping up-to-date 
is always a good thing.

When we plan a more solid release than this first beta for Etch, we will 
of course notify you in a more structured way, declare a string freeze in 
time and provide proper deadlines for translation updates.

Cheers,
FJP
