Where are my translations?

Dear Hjorth,
Thank you for your suggestion. What a coincidence. Today I thought of 
importing my translations into Launchpad, since uploading them to Gnome-nl 
is probably not enough. As soon as I have found out what is the right way of 
getting a translation published I will let you know through this mailing 

>> As a member of the Dutch translation team I have translated the
>> (upstream) documentation of gedit, Empathy and Gnome-utils. In the
>> beginning of April I sent the .po-files to Gnome-nl, where the files
>> were committed. I am sad to say that, although I have sent them on time,
>> they do not appear in Lucid Lynx, where I still get the English version.
>> What happened to my translations? Have I done all the hard work for 
>> nothing?
>> At Gnome-nl they say it is ubuntu's responsibility to publish the
>> translations. But who is responsible: ubuntu-translators or ubuntu-nl?
>> How does it work? Should I have imported my translations in Launchpad,
>> or is this done automatically?
>> Will my translations appear in a language update? And if so, when?
>> I would really appreciate it if someone can help me on this, because it
>> is rather frustrating to do all the hard work for nothing.
