Previously I thought that the best approach would be to report a bug
against Debian package with new/updated translation attached and
package maintainer will forward it to the upstream project. In this
case Debian will get all translation even if next upstream
release is going to miss Debian release.

But apparently my understanding of workflow is wrong. Is it?
