Thanks - I'll go ahead with this one, and the one which Adi has
pointed out in relation to Evolution.

We can do it. However, in the light of the other comments, what I'd
propose to do is as follows:

1. Fix the broken Ubuntu One and Evolution menu entries now and import
the pot file asap, but *not* add the new material about Ubuntu Music
2. Make an upload prior to release with as many translations as possible
3. Include the additional Ubuntu Music Store material and possibly
some other fixes like adding some documentation for Ubuntu One after
release, leaving translators a few weeks to concentrate on these
strings, then make a further upload some time towards the end of May,
or early June.
