So there were 3 string questions in question, I responded at the time
saying two of the string changes were just accelerator additions
(buttons that didn't have accelerators) and could be reverted at your
discretion (we could dig up the bug numbers, but they boil down to
"button X has no accelerator).  When we looked at reverting these on our
own just before 2.0.1, we saw some translators had already translated
the strings and left them alone (also knowing that 2.0.2 would be our
release for GNOME 2.8.1 anyhow).  The other change, re-using a string
(64974) we should have followed up on, it just got missed but we'll sort
it for 2.0.2.

I'm not sure what needs improving, after this time we've submitted all
string changing patches for approval to gnome-i18n gnome org as far as I
know (we didn't before because we didn't know we needed to as explained
in my email at the time).
