Updated translations from rosetta will be added directly to Hoary language
packs on a periodic basis, regardless of whether they have reached 100%.
The period has not been finalized yet, but it should be on the order of

For Warty, there were some modifications made to UI text, relative to GNOME
2.8, for which updated translations were not available in time.

For Hoary, with Rosetta, language packs, and active local teams, we hope to
be much more able to keep up with these changes.

If you want to make sure that Ubuntu 5.04 has the most complete translations
for your language, then Rosetta is the best place to work, because the
translations from Rosetta will enter Hoary very quickly.
