Hi Yuri,

I did not mention that there aren't KDE updates. I was simply stating
the fact that after release there won't be KDE translation updates in
Ubuntu. That is, even if there are monthly minor releases from KDE, they
will not make it into Ubuntu after release.

Now it would actually be a good idea to get those minor releases every
now and then as an SRU, so I'd suggest discussing it with the Kubuntu team.

Regarding the language pack schedule, it is defined here:

As any other part of Ubuntu, it is open to contribution, so if anyone
wants to ensure the language packs are released regularly, they should
feel free to help making it happen.
