** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+  * The K3b interface is not translated for expected localisations.
+  * The translations are not present in git-master snapshots, but are
+ provided in the shipped release tarballs.
+  * This upload switches to the 17.04.0 release tarball where the
+ localisations/translations are available and re-corrects the packaging
+ to install these.
+ [Test Case]
+  * Reproduce by switching KDE regional settings to what should be a
+ supported localisation (including installing main kde language packs),
+ log out and in, and K3B interface will remain in English only.
+  * With the update, the excepted translated interface for K3B is used.
+  * As commented in the bug, reporter has tested the staging packages for
+ the update and reported on their locale (German I think) that the
+ translated K3B is restored as expected.
+  * I have tested on Spanish and Dutch the same, although not be a
+ speaker of those I cannot verify the translation quality itself.
+ [Regression Potential]
+  * The lack of translations is itself a regression, so restoring them is
+ correcting that case.
+  * In addition to restoring translations (adding 'po' dir and cmakelists
+ adjustment to make those), updating to the 17.04.0 release tarball
+ includes ONLY the extra commits:
+ - Update the internal project and app version in cmake to 17.04.0
+ - Add a few additional translations to the appstream data (sr, tr)
+ - Update a test that we don't currently run (hopefully will in AA release).
+  * Consequently the largest risk of regression may be introducing a
+ translation of a feature which is of not as good 'quality' as the native
+ English translation. In general, as these are the intended translations
+ to be shipped in the upstream release, this is of no more severity than
+ if we had been able to ship this release (missed by a few days)
+ originally.
+ ---
  the interface of the version of K3b shipped in Zesty is untranslated,
  because apparently the respective translation files are not shipped.
  A package k3b-i18n, that should contain the translation files, exists,
  but it doesn't contain anything (see attached screenshot).
