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

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.
