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 suppose this upload will be convenient for the reviewers too.

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....
