Please > don't change your mind. There is no mind change. These languages will not be de-activated, if that's what you feared. However, I *do* have worries when I see no single update since Etch. Some strings that were changed or added *are* used in quite common installs, even in *default* installs. My concern abou tlaguages that had no update since Etch is that the translator is very likely to be inactive or unreachable. Since Etch was released, I sent *three* call for updates to a wide range of people for each incomplete language: - Last-Translator - Language-Team - backup translator(s) listed in install/doc/i18n/languages.xml - some personal contacts > Yep, to get even more updates would be fine. Nevertheless I strongly hope > there will be later not again rejections of incomplete translations ... The policy is yet to be defined but there might be some. After the lenny beta 1 release, we will activate the sublevels feature that will sort stings in 5 sublevels. Completing at least the first two sublevels will be mandatory for a language to be kept.
