The final ubuntu-docs upload before the release will be tonight, with
translations, as these need to be in before the
LanguagePackTranslation deadline. We currently have French and German
screenshots, committed by Jeremy Bicha using his automated screenshot

The issue of including further screenshots might actually raise a disk
space issue. I'm not sure that the technology which currently strips
out all translations from the ubuntu-docs package is equipped to deal
with screenshots. We will need to make sure that it is, because
otherwise the additional screenshots will increase the size of the
ubuntu-docs package and possibly impact upon the size of the default
live CD image.

I've copied Martin Pitt on this email, as he knows how all this works.

Realistically, we are looking at a post-release update in order to add
more localised screenshots, or 12.10.
