Not really. It was primarily meant as advice for the next time. :-)
You can fix it if you want, though, but you don't need to. (I should
have been more explicit in this regard...)

Not. :-)

You don't need to add changelog items if you fix things in the scope
of the current changelog entry (i.e. if you fix anything which has
been added after the last upload). 

For example fixing typos in the current changelog entry doesn't need a
new changelog item (IMHO obviously, but it may be less obvious to
others :-), but if you fix something in the changelog entry for an
already uploaded release, you should IMHO add something like "* Fixed
typo in previous changelog entry".

A common case for this are adding CVE-IDs for security issues fixed in
a previous upload. See this commit for an example:

Not sure. The translators seem active:

There seems no code change since March anymore. But that's less than a
year ago, so it's hard to say.
