I've been confused between glade-2 and glade-2. Debian also misses them.
But I'm still wondering what's taking it so long to be pushed since it
What I am asking is to lock upstream strings that have been done.
What is the point of offering them?
1) If there is an error, there is bugzilla.gnome.org
2) If someone wants to contribute, they can join the upstream project.
3) if the translations are not locked and someone works on them, they
waste their time and their translations go to /dev/null when upstream
has done them.
(Actually I'm not sure about point 3, what happens in the case of conflicts?)
