This brings yet another question about the process of translation and/or
documentation. I mostly use en_US and sometimes tr_TR locale so I, like
many others, don't care if my system has translations/documentation in
other languages.

Maybe we could pack the whole translation and documentation in per-
language modules sometime in the future. So Joe R. Hacker from foo-
distro-gnome-team would pull those modules and pack them as .fpm
packages, and Joe User would have only those he wants installed. I doubt
if that would help anyone on translation of documentation teams, though.
