No. There will be no further upload of emdebian-grip for Wheezy. I will
do a backport once the release is made. The backport will involve
massive changes to the package. Most users of the package actually pull
in the package from unstable, backports or directly from SVN.

The fact that no upload was made means that the work is still ongoing
and is now too late for Wheezy. I now have other priorities.

Wrong. The package is likely to need substantial changes via a
backport. Too many changes to get a freeze exception. There is no point
working on the translations - all changes after this point *will* be
thrown away. Don't waste my time and yours.

... and will remain so. There are no plans for uploads of any of those.
I'm concentrating on release-critical issues.

NMU's are hereby explicitly declined. This isn't about debconf
translations which are expected to be NMU'd.
There is a chance that these packages will drop translation support
entirely after Wheezy.
