Hi Fran,

In principle, there is no need to generate PPA language packs for the
development release. Language packs are generated twice a week and
uploaded automatically to the archive, except for the freeze periods
before releasing milestones (alphas, betas, RC, etc.), according to the
current schedule [1].

So there is no need to have an intermediate PPA, as language packs are
made available to users of the development release already.

The problem we've had for a few weeks is that these language packs were
stopped due to a problem in generating them. That's why you did not see
any updates.

What we were discussing on the previous thread was for how many _stable_
releases should we have a PPA, so that testers can test stable updates
before they are released.

I hope this clarifies things. Thanks for the good feedback!

Regards,
David.
