I have moved some tags to .po files, mostly the texts related to the photos
shown in the homepage. This way, I expect that when we change a photo in the
slide show, the new strings will appear in the homepage.po file, and the
languages that didn't update that file yet, will show the new photo with the
English title/alt_text, but won't show the "outdated warning".

I have synced the French translation and plan to sync the others (Russian,
Swedish) today, but later (I cannot now).

Guillem kindly provided a patch so we can "mark" some news to be shown, and then
show them (translated or untranslated, as now) in the homepage using a function
similar than the current get_recent_list. However, I don't know how to adapt ti
to display the date in the calendar layout, etc. I will work on this too, and
also try to reuse what we have in ctime.wml template, so people don't need to
translate the dates.

Kind regards,
