The review procedure is really long (more than 1 month) as it also
includes a translaiton update round.

So, blocking an upload for this is asking you too much and I'd suggest
you upload anyway. debian-i18n has been notified of a running review
and translators should not try to send updates for the new templates
you added (maybe some will....because sometimes people do not pay
attention to debian-i18n notices).

*I* will lead the review and I have access to D-I SVN so that will not
be a problem. I will indeed make the review on an SVN checkout which I
can update as long as you're doing other changes, including new version(s).

To summarize: I think you should go ahead with the upload without
caring about the review now....
