Hi Thomas,

Firstly, please accept my apologies for the lack of reply to your mail.
As you can probably appreciate, there's a lot of work that the release
team have to do. However, that doesn't mean you shoudn't have a mail
back, so sorry.

I believe that the previous discussions on this led to the conclusion
that there is simply no way that the changes proposed could be reviewed.
So in a way, yes. The size of the changeset is the reason it's being
rejected. Please bear in mind the amount of emails we're getting to
review diffs.

Ok, we're willing to accept changes that include the following only:
  - fixes for release critical bugs (i.e., bugs of severity critical,
  	grave and serious)
  - changes for release goals, if they are not invasive;
  - translation updates
  - documentation fixes

I hope this provides some clarity as to your request.

No matter whether you use charcoal or pine-cones, you've got to ignite the fuel
somehow. The traditional way is to use pieces of bark from a birch-tree. In the
soviet era, we used Pravda, the newspaper of the Communist Party. Proprietary
software licenses work just as well.                  http://tinyurl.com/yqnm58
