Just to confirm what will happen for ubuntu-docs translations this release:

Translations will be exported from Launchpad after 12:00 GMT on Sunday
19 October 2008. This gives translators an extra 3-4 days to complete
translations. The translations will then be reviewed and uploaded to
Ubuntu 8.10 by Thursday 23 October. That extra time is needed to go
through all of the translations and fix any broken xml tags, which
always takes up a lot of time each release.

Jeroen: there are still 4 pot files to be imported and over 1000 po
files: what are the chances these will all be done by Sunday 19?
