Thanks for the message, Aron! Be aware that the content is pretty
similar to what it is before, so if we run against the deadline it
should be possible to move the translations to the new msgids.

The exceptions are the ubuntuone, empathy and installing-software
templates. They do have new content, so should be given higher priority.

One other thing worth looking at is the length of the strings. Now, it
isn't a disaster if they get longer, but the current design encourages
the slide text to stay beneath the bottom part of the background's
gradient. If it's at all possible, try to keep the translated strings at
or below the length of the original strings.

Thanks for all the hard work, and I'm sorry about the last minute
shake-ups. If I meet any of you in person, remind me I owe you a
drink :)

Thanks again,
Dylan McCall

PS: Yep, string freeze was approved. Don't worry about the livecd
translations freeze.
