If I understand it correctly though, this means that the LiveCD will
be released with translations that are several months old. In the case
of our team, and I believe also of others, there have been lots of
work done in translating the documentation during the Hardy cycle,
which have yet to be published. I would rather see all this work
published in the LiveCD than waiting for the few (if I understand it
correctly) strings recently added in the new documentation templates
to be translated.

Also, if in any case the documentation translations are exported after
the non language pack translation deadline, could someone from the
documentatiuon team either publish a schedule or update these [1] [2]
to reflect this? Otherwise it gets extremely confusing for
