There is some validity to the complaint that new releases are blocked
on translation updates. Our translators do a wonderful, and greatly
appreciated job, but they're disadvantaged by our suboptimal
translation process. A big motivation for moving to a service like
Pootle or Launchpad translations is to help decouple their work from
that of the release manager. I think we also need to find a better
way to package non-English language support so that updates to
languages can happen on their own schedule without requiring or
blocking the core Mailman releases.
