I missed this one. Thanks for the announcement.

By the way, where did these translations come from? I mean, they
appear to be translated by Kyle, so I guess he imported them from
I had to change a lot of them (lot of them seemed to be
GoogleTranslator-made, nonsense). Maybe I should check any translation
coming from that source.

> This is now the second step: opening up downstream Karmic translations

> recommend that only bug fixes are performed.
> If you want to start translating for a new language during the stable
> release, we also recommend doing this upstream and then using the global
> suggestions feature (point and click) to translate downstream and let
> the new language be included in the regular language packs.
> The reason we adopted this approach is to minimize later work to
> upstream (i.e. applying downstream translation fixes to the upstream
> project) Karmic translation work.
> Here you'll find the links to the translations:

> https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/karmic/+source/desktop-switcher
> https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/karmic/+source/go-home-applet
> https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/karmic/+source/window-picker-applet
> We also mentioned webfav in the past, which is a Firefox extension to
> bookmark favourites that contains one translatable string. We're still
> working on this, as it requires non-trivial packaging changes for
> exporting the translations to the language packs. The release date being
> near, it is very unlikely that this is done for Karmic. On the positive
> side, the extension has already got translations for 30 languages.
