Where are my translations?

Hi David

Thank you very much for the explanation of how strings propagate to
Ubuntu.  I have a few extra questions though.

Who does this, and how frequently? (In rough terms)

By a computer or a human?  Does this automatically happen after the packaging?

Do you know the flow for ordinary, translatable-in-Rosetta strings?
I'm mostly interested in who does what and how often, since that is
what I have to know in order to make sure that the translations get
through the system (I recently opened a bug report because a
particular fix didn't make it into the langpack update in spite of
having been fixed in Rosetta well before).

Best regards
