Those translations are only used when they get activated by me. So
they're low priority for me. I will of course include them in the next
upload, but I don't see a reason to do an upload just for them. In
normal cases nobody should see the messages.
Anyway, if you feel like doing an NMU for it, feel free to do so.
Also note that the package has a udeb and so is frozen. If you want to
get it into testing you'll also have to ask the release and d-i team
to approve it.
