My "team" is now at less than 15% for 2.22. Obviously I won't even
consider translating these ever (or let's be positive: in the
foreseeable future :-)
There are of course other modules that I consider to be in the same
category, and other people might not agree with me. Things like
libbonobo and Glib for example.
While GNOME grows, catching up from less than 15% might be impossible
for a single person with limited time, and ideally we should find ways
of making this limited time have the biggest possible impact. In
reality, exactly which 20% of the whole is untranslated, can have a big
effect on the end-user experience. --help text for example, is not
really that important for many users.
Anyway, just some extra thoughts. In other words, I agree, Wouter!
