That would be great. Let's see how the situation looks on October 1st.

approved, therefore I wanted to send the unblock request as early as
possible so that the changes can be reviewed while I'm waiting for
translations to come in. Translation-only updates seem to get accepted
quickly (cf. nvidia-support, nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy-96xx).
And I want to get this update in wheezy quickly to avoid collecting a
lot of duplicates of the "on amd64, wine 32bit opengl does not work any
more" bug (due to having the old monolithic ia32-libs installed).
Furthermore it contains wrong or missing information - that was not yet
available during the previous translation round. So while I appreciate
your i18n efforts (and try to make my packages translation friendly), I
think it would be better to temporarily have a partially translated
fglrx-driver package in wheezy. And we are talking about non-free here.
So hopefully once the package migrates, I can make another i18n upload
with all the translations (that could even be aged to get in more quickly).
