Not sure if any of this gnome language stuff is going to cause us issue 
like it has in the past. re trusty LTS bug(s)

Never really sure about any gnome statements that it ' only affects us' 
things anymore, consequently forwarding to us.

starting to think the same about mainbuntu - don't believe anything 
deliberate, but fairly sure they'd not check either.
