This upload has sitting in tpu for about 10 days, and I am not aware
of any l10n bugs not fixed by it. It is currently waiting for two
things to happen:
a) being built on arm, mips, and alpha.
b) after that one of the release-manager's will need to review the
diff and approve the upload to testing.

The outage of tpu-autobuilding for alpha, arm, mips and mipsel (mipsel
seems to be at least semi-fixed, though.) is known to the respective
buildd-admins, and I assume it is being worked on. - They just have
even more important stuff on their plates, afaik
testing-security-updates is in a similar state autobuilding-wise. I do
not doubt this will be resolved, because otherwise we will release
sarge e.g. without KDE.

I also do not think there'll be difficulties with b), all changes are
straightforward and as minimal as possible and I think I've got a good
working relationship with our release-maste^Wmanagers, too. ;-)
