Hi Yaron,

The templates priority page was meant to be a specification for setting
the template priorities in Launchpad in order to fulfil another long
time translator request: to provide more focus to the most important
templates and show them higher up in the list. Thus the most important
templates for a translated Operating System (Ubuntu flavour) should be
on the first 1-2 pages (roughly).


Thus it was never intended to be used as a literal reference to
Ubuntu-specific templates, but rather a reference to what priority
criteria was used to come up with the ordering in Launchpad.

I'm sorry if it did not convey that information. I've now updated the
page to be more clear on that.

I like your approach :-)

I'm not sure I can follow this last part. Could you please clarify?
