Hi Sense,

I cannot agree more on this. The translations team already started
running a "Kubuntu Translations Day" last cycle, which was essentially a
hug day targeted to Kubuntu translations. However, it might make sense
to make it more general and make translations a more or less regular
target for Hug Days.

Regarding the proposal on language packs, just a couple of notes:

      * Ubuntu Translations project. We generally do not (or encourage
        to) report bugs on language packs, unless a bug affects a
        particular one of them. We report all translations-related bugs
        against the ubuntu-translations project in Launchpad, which
        would be a better target for the Hug Day:

      * Reporting translation bugs. Some time ago, a member of the
        translation team added general instructions on how to report
        translation bugs to the ReportingBugs page at
        20translation%20bugs. This has worked well so far in terms of
        filed reports, but I'd like to ask the bugsquad whether you
        think that is appropriate and to review the text we used, since
        that page is very visible to users.

      * Date. You were proposing the 26th Nov (in two days time), but
        since it has been a very hectic period coming from UDS, I'd
        rather propose it for the Thursday of the coming week (3rd Dec),
        so that there is time for the announcement as well - I could
        imagine that some translators would be interested in
        participating. I went ahead and changed the proposed date - let
        me know what you think.

That's all, I'll be looking forward to your comments and thanks for your
interest on translations!
