Oh. Sorry, didn't notice that one.

Yes, I know the workflow isn't really smooth. I usually take care of
writing the first draft of the announcement, and then let the reviewers
do the commits with the fixes (mostly because I don't feel entitled to
decided on changes, as I'm not a native speaker).
Sometimes, checking just before sending it, I notice that fixes are not
applied, and do it myself (it's quite a rare occurence, as usually we
have at least Justin and Moray work on it -- thanks, guys!).

I don't expect (and no one else can, in a voluntary project) translators
to be on the spot 24/24, really. My mail was just to explain why I did
commit the French version but not the German one.
From now on, I'll try maybe to check the review at least a day before
publication, but it's not always possible (due to time constraints).

Then, as said, we could do much for improve our workflow, both in DPN and
other announcements: I don't know how much the current one is
sustainable in the long run.
Suggestions welcome!
