I don't agree that I should stall uploading some important changes that
were prepared at short notice for translation updates. This doesn't mean
that I'm unreceptive to including translations, nor uploading a package
with updated translations.

This makes it doubly annoying when Christian then ignores my email to
this list and sends me one of his NMU emails (when I've already
invited patches to be sent).

Just to make it absolutely clear, I am happy to accept translation
updates and upload them. Let's say in one week's time.
