They did not exist at that time, and this is my point. Your experience
is that bugs filed are sometimes ignored (and indeed you could not guess
that your translation had been silently incorporated). Basically those
guidelines have been written so that it does not happen anymore. As
your mail seemed to imply that following these guidelines was useless,
I disagreed because I believe that this statement is wrong.
