the desktop files of gnome-app-install and update-manager are included
in the pot files of both projects.

But I would not recommend to start translating g-a-i or u-p until the
end of this week, since both still get an ui review.

Another relating issue: Is "Update Manager" the best string for the
admin menu? The menu items of the GNOME preferences and the
gnome-system-tools are named by their object, eg. "User & Groups" or
"Network" and not "Network Manager". So perhaps "Updates" or "Ubuntu
Updates" would be more consistent.
