Obviously there is a balance needed. We haven't discussed the
introduction of any major new content. The bug fixes that we would be
talking about will generally relate to one, or at most a few strings
here and there. At the same time, any bug fix in documentation pretty
much will always involve a string change of some kind, and this is an
LTS release so it's worthwhile establishing a process that allows us
to fix bugs and translations with them. I think it's going to be
necessary to change some strings and that's exactly why we'd like to
give the translators a good period (4 weeks or so) to update the
translations.

We should certainly announce it well. I imagine that this list is the
central point for announcements but am happy if the request for
translation gets announced elsewhere when ready.
