For technical reasons, we can only export .po files into language-packs,
which get compiled into .mo files. .po files which get converted into
.xml files cannot be dealt with in language-packs, simply because the
code, which generates the language-packs does not know which .po files
to convert to .xml and which ones to .mo files.

For those cases, if they get accepted into Rosetta, the package
maintainer or someone who wants to take care of the translations, needs
to export the updated translations manually and upload a new
kubuntu-docs package with the updated translations into the archive.
