Call for testing: Xenial langpack updates III

Hi again,

The number of reported test results so far are ... not so many. So this 
is a 'friendly reminder'.

After an Ubuntu version, in this case 16.04, has been released, it's 
considered "stable", and all updates must be verified somehow to prevent 
surprise issues. This applies also to translation updates.

So please give this translation update some attention. The requested 
tests are simple, and won't take long to accomplish. If you test, and 
report the result, new and corrected translations will make it to the 
end users of Ubuntu 16.04.

One week to go.


/ Gunnar

Hello translators!

We now start the third langpack update cycle for Xenial. While this 
update is delayed compared to what was planned originally, it gives us a 
chance to improve the translation coverage before the 16.04.4 point 
release on 15th of February.

The names of the langpacks which have been copied to xenial-proposed are:


where 'XX' is the language code.

The steps involved are described at this wiki page:

Basically the translation teams are asked to

* install the updated langpacks from xenial-proposed
* perform the tests according to the wiki page
* add the test result for respective language to the Xenial table on
   the wiki page

The row for Swedish has already been inserted; just add your language in 
the same manner.

Langpacks which have been reported as successfully tested by 24th of 
January 14:00 UTC will be copied to xenial-updates, and with that made 
available to all users.

This is the last coordinated translation update for Xenial. If a need
arises for further updates of a particular language, this guidance applies:
