Anything Ubuntu specific will be in Rosetta because the entire Ubuntu
distribution is imported into it. See the page:


You should be able to find those examples you give. In the case of
"About Ubuntu", this is a documentation team project, and is in Rosetta
under Hoary [1], but the Breezy version has not yet been released for
translation. When it is, an email will be sent to this and other mailing
lists appealling for help with the translation!

Hope this helps!
