Call for testing of the language pack candidates. 2nd Natty language pack update (Deadline June 15th)

Hallo everyone

So far 5 teams have tested the Natty language packs for their
language. Under normal circumstances there is no pressure to test the
language packs. The release cycles work as an offer, so if you have
made improvements since the last release you can test the packs and
get you improvements sent out. On the other hand, if you have not made
significant improvements since the last lang. pack release, then you
need not bother.

However, this language pack release is a special one, since we have
had the infrastructure change in the Firefox localization, so I would
__strongly encourage as many teams__ to test the language packs as
humanly possible.

Regards Kenneth
