I've learned something some time ago: "Everything is possible!... given

This just hit me... we could do some really coarse sorting based on the
history of the packages which is present in..., well, *every* package
out there in the archive. Some tool that analyzes the change logs and
searches the "Updated ... translation" string and how often these occur
in relation to the package releases and the time translations were
rotting in BTS (high difficulty because of really subtle issues like
release freezes, fixed/closed l10n bugs, centralized bugs like Christian
started to use during this NMU campaign, "just a translation update is
not good enough reason for a package release")

/me does NOT engage to implement such a thing because of lack of time
and the many other open points in my ToDo list.
