Fwd: Repeated submission of translation package

There is a discussion going on upstream on the AbiWord dev list about
updating PO files of older versions.

What version of AbiWord are you planning to include in 11.2.0?  I've
been working on improving their Spanish L10n, but I now have concerns
about whether that effort will make it into the 11.2.0 release (on the
GNOME boot side).  Knowing with certainty which version of AbiWord you
will be packaging would be extremely important for me to know when
advocating for improved L10n on the upstream side.  Also helpful would
be a brief description of where you would be pulling the L10n from as
the workflow Urmas describes seems unreasonable to me, compared to the
simple solution of having AbiWord simply commit an updated 2.8 PO

Thanks for you assistance with this query.

In Loonix, it's maintainer's task to conduct such minor updates.
Taking translations from trunk, pruning them with stable template and
generating strings from them can, and should, be done by maintainer.
