I agree on that: translators need consistent deadlines to be able to 
provide the translations.

Sorry for entering late in the conversation. I had a chat with Ahmed 
last week and said I would reply, but I got sidetracked and didn't do it 
until now.

As no one seems to have maintained the translations this cycle, and in 
case you're still seeking approval from the translations team, I'd say 
the merges should be good to go: the translations template is not up to 
date anyway, as far as I can tell.

Going forward, and if someone steps up to maintain the guide, I'd be 
happy to assist them in setting up and updating translations.
