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.
