I do hope that strings from upstream have higher priority
than strings in Rosetta. I would find it quite wrong if Rosetta
replaced without good reasons translations that have been
done carefully upstream.

Shouldn't Rosetta only add strings when translations are missing
upstream? Or in some rare cases maybe correct incorrect strings
from upstream?

I've done translations upstream, which have been reviewed and I'd
be a bit disappointed if they were badly altered in Ubuntu.
