Thanks for the work on this, Matthew!

Sounds like a good plan. I think we could schedule a new Lucid language
pack release targeted at when the ubuntu-docs package hits

What we could do right now is to set a date for the deadline to accept
translations to the docs and by extension to the language pack. The
proposed date on the 13th of September looks good to me.

If we agree on that, we should probably send a separate e-mail with an
announcement for the update, mentioning the new templates being
uploaded, and the translation deadline for docs + other translations in
the language packs.

What do you say?

As a side note, I think it would be useful to sync such updates with
point releases on LTSs. I'm not sure about the status of the discussion
on stable release updates of Ubuntu Docs, but I think it would be useful
to put it as an agenda item on a meeting or on a roadmap for the docs
