We (i18n people) failed on that matter, which is infortunate for our users but we will certainly not blame the release team for the wisdom they've already proven many times. Michael, I really suggest that APT in experimental is now focused on being "current APT plus things we really want to see in etch+1" and, this, ASAP. Thus, the first action after etch release will be to upload the experimental version to unstable. I18n folks, we *must* do our best to get the "translated packages descriptions support" goal listed as an official etch+1 release goal. So, please wait for the call for release goals....and react when it'll be published. Until this.....just do like everybody in the project: work on that damn release.
