Re: Time for translation to get into stable release
Don't expect that the package maintainer will forward your work. Some does (or inform you to contact the project directly), some don't. Some even make a Debian update separate from upstream.
I would contact the maintainer/the project before translating. It can be frustrating to not see the work incorporated i a new version (but translation is made on the long run). If the project is making regular updates, your work will end up i Debian, but perhaps not as fast as you would wish.
Debian does not have a system (like Ubuntu) for translation updates.
hopes the info helps

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