I agree... template needed :)

The current upstream wikipages are just drafts.

I think that is a valid bug, both for the Ubuntu package and ubuntu-translations.
After the translation is fixed, the package maintainer will need to
upload an updated package.

Try to report it upstream and link the upstream bug.

I hope we can have a common meeting with Ubuntu bugsqaud team and
discuss the details. They are the expert in triaging bugs and we should
first ask their opinion.
