<motivation_voice> Come on everyone...! </motivation_voice>

We need A LOT of language teams to test the new language packs this 
time, since the packs contain docs for entire programs, that was left 
out due to a bug in the original release. So far only have 4 language 
packs that have been tested and signed of on, and remember that if they 
have not been tested, they will not be released.

The entire procedure can be done in about 15-20 minutes, and it is a 
real easy way to contribute, so now is the time to try an mobilize some 
new people from your loco's ;) (what would also be fine is, if you were 
also able to find some Kubuntu users to do a little testing as well)

Goooo, go go go.
