It should use the "Packaged" ones, since they are the same as the ones 
currently in Launchpad. But this only works for the Ubuntu release where 
the new package has been imported into (most likely Maverick), since 
older Ubuntu releases carry the older package versions, where the 
upstream translations didn't include Nynorsk.

Shouldn't be necessary, Launchpad should switch those automatically to 
"Packaged". But in case it doesn't, just file a question on and ask the Launchpad 
Translations team to switch all translations on this template to "Packaged".
