I would really like to give a +1 one here, but the problem with this
is the time we have left for translating it. It is not just the
translators time, but also the time the POT file needs to get

I don't know if Launchpad admins can manually speed up an import, but
the queue looks like is a little bit slow in this period: I have a
manually imported translations that is still in the approved status
since March 31st.

Deadline is in 10 days, so it might be not enough time.

This is the only concern I have. If admins can push it, that would be awesome.

On a side note, about the "wrong" menu path, that could be easily
resolved by translators translating it with the correct path. The
problem is with the C locale that you need to patch after translations
have been exported and the xml files recreated.

The images path shouldn't be a problem even if you patch the C locale
before recreating the xml files: those strings shouldn't be translated

As a suggestion: wouldn't it be possible to have an updated ubuntu-doc
package like 7-15 days after the release date? I know this is not
optimal, but in this way translators will have enough time to finish
up the new strings.


PS: I'm not replying to the other thread, my concerns are the same.
