I'm not sure how it's possible just to insert ubuntu-specific changes
in Launchpad: that would be quite difficult I think. Based on the
feedback so far, I propose to upload the whole pot templates for
gnome-user-docs/gnome2-accessibility-guide and
gnome-user-docs/gnome2-user-guide (which will include the Ubuntu
changes) together with the upstream translations which are already
present in the package, and then import any amended po files from
Rosetta. Hopefully bzr is clever enough to merge any additional
changes to po files in upstream svn too.

If translators wish to use Rosetta to translate upstream strings which
are untranslated in upstream, then it will be up to them to send those
changes upstream, I think.
