Any chance you could point me at which components you translated? I
probably won't be able to merge most of the translations now, but I
might be able to do one or two in the event that I'm changing something
else anyway.

It seems very hard to ask Rosetta for a maintainer to-do list, i.e.
"which translations are in Rosetta but not in the package?". Is this on
the Rosetta plan, or is it already implemented somewhere I haven't

I haven't been taking installer translations via Rosetta for Hoary,
because it only started working for the installer very recently. I'll be
sorting out use of Rosetta for installer translations for Breezy.
