That was a very bad thing to do: that way, we lost track of what was
indeed a packaged translation, so we can't revert to that easily.
Indeed, you solved it for yourself temporarily (and I admit, we
haven't been quick to resolve this problem for everybody), but caused
much bigger pain for the future.
If I gave you that advice (I can't remember, but I remember discussing
this), you may freely smack me in the face.

Indeed, which is why it was a bad thing to do.

So, are you basically asking us to set any submissions done by you
('translated and reviewed by' ~yeager) and/or Christian Rose with
I'll have to discuss any of the solutions to this problem with Carlos
