So AFAICS those patches referenced in the bug add only one highly visible
string ("Software Install"), since the other one seems to be already used
("Install selected software on the system").

OTOH, there are already 20 complete translations for gnome-packagekit, plus
there have been many string freeze breaks recently, so I guess I'll let
other i18n members decide if they consider this an important issue worth
fixing before the stable release.
