For translations, I would also probably push Mongolian in, along with
Spanish. I am currently making those two sets of translations go
through all kinds of tests (I wish I could make the rest of them go
through these as well, but time is severely limited atm).
If this raises concern about the inclusion of the latest translations
for other languages, I am currently working on a system for building
"language packs" (single archives), which can simply be installed in
any Qemu image/XO/sugar-jhbuild setup, so that anyone can try out the
latest translations for any of our supported language whenever they
wish to.

However, "cherry-picking" the translations for Spanish and Mongolian
may pose a problem, which I'm not sure how to handle. The translations
were often committed as parts of huge commits, in which other
translations also went in. Maybe someone who's more familiar with Git
may want to suggest some ways out here.

Thanks,
Sayamindu
