We don't use this, but I've amended the settings to ensure that
translations are shared between the two places.

This is a question for the translation coordinators rather than us,
I'm sure that we'll be happy to be guided by them as to how best to
handle this. Over the past few cycles we've been clear that we use the
translations in the upstream location, but that we enable translation
sharing on Launchpad between the package location and the upstream

But if translators want us to make changes, or if there are things we
can do to make their job easier, please let us know so that we can try
and help.
