Hi Hannie,

I uploaded the Natty language packs about a week ago. This is a step
generally Martin Pitt does, but he was away at the time. It seems that
they did not get uploaded in the end, but I've been busy with other
projects to contact the other archive admins and find out what happened.

I'm away next week, but Martin will be back, so if someone could help by
just pinging him on IRC, we could then unblock the language packs.

Thanks.

Regards,
David
