Sorry, I was very busy with the end of the term and could not read
your message in depth until today, once translators started sending
changes. I even thought I was the one who should ask translators for

Looking at the translations I noticed that first template was not
being translated. It was temporarily left as untranslatable in the
uploaded packages to have the question available, but translators not
start working on it until consensus was reached, and it got unnoticed
as non-translatable.  Changed it to translatable, added a dot at end
of sentence and changed type to error.

I also missed that templates to be removed were still there, removed.

Changes attached, both full templates file and diff against final version.

Sorry for being late,
