Yes, they have been allowed to accumulate somewhat; let's take care of this
now.  You shouldn't need to NMU this, I've incorporated all of the pending
translations into my working directory, except for Spanish which I have a
question on which I want to raise with the translator first.

I have received one new Finnish translation that I've received since you
sent out this mail.  Should I expect to receive more translations soon, or
should I upload once the Spanish translation is settled?

... except for that one time you NMUed a package for translations and
something else broke ;D
