That's because of their place in the overall queue.  There are still a 
bit over 3,000 files in front of the first ubuntu-docs uploads, so it'll 
be at least another day before the importer gets to those.  I've been 
asked to prioritize debian-installer as well, though I believe those 
will go through pretty quickly.

There is a problem with that: it means that people start translating 
without seeing what work is already done but waiting for import.  So you 
could end up with the same translation effort going into much less 
useful things.
