Oh, right. The standard mail template is dated back to the days I was
very very very careful with l10n NMUs and left 2 weeks to maintainers
to react. Experience later showed that it was indeed useless as either
they react nearly immediately....or they don't react at all.

So, for this campaign, I reduced the delay between the "intent" mail
and the "call for l10n updates" mail to 4 days..:-)...but forgot
updating the templates.

You're actually the first person to notice this, so it proves that:
- these mails are most often not read entirely
- you're more careful than most maintainers (which I already knew).

About the NMU itself: I'll notify you at the end of the process and
leave you priority for the upload (you'll get a full patch against the
package currently in unstable). Then, either you can upload and it's
bette rif you do it...or you can't or don't have time, or whatever,
and I'll do it. That will be your call.

Thanks for your answer and....see you in NYC next year! :-)
