Hi translators,

(Re-issuing the call for testing after having re-uploaded the language
packs after fixing a critical bug)

We've uploaded language packs in the maverick-proposed repository for
you to test before they are released to all users. These should contain
all your updates and fixes in translations done since the release date.

I'd like to ask teams to test them and provide an indication
that they've done so by following some simple steps and submitting a
signoff, so that we know that translations have been successfully
tested.

Simply follow the instructions in this page and add your team's signoff
in the table at the bottom:

  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/LanguagePackUpdatesQA

The deadline for the testing is the 25th of March (in a week's
time). After that, we'll update the language packs we've received
feedback for into maverick-updates, so that all users can benefit from
the new translations and fixes.

Remember that you'll have to to enable the maverick-proposed repository
to get these updates:

Notes
-----

Remember that now you can subscribe to the iCal feed to stay up to date
with language pack updates and better coordinate your work:

Notice that as commented on the mailing list recently, we've experienced
https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/731298. This bug has now been fixed, but
for those of you using the language packs PPA, please remember to follow
Martin's Pitt advice to purge and reinstall the packages for a proper
fix:

"Note that I can't automatically fix packages for people who already
upgraded to the broken PPA version; they will need to purge the packages
(-base as well) and reinstall them."

Thank you for your help in testing translations for all users in your
language!

Regards,
David.
