There's some confusion between XO releases and Sugar releases here.
Sugar releases happen every six months, and XO (OLPC OS) releases
happen less often -- they aren't strictly time-based, but major
releases have happened roughly once a year, and minor bugfix releases
happen as they're needed.
So, it's not the case that Sugar releases are incorporated into OLPC
releases immediately. (In fact, for the XO-1.5 we chose to use Sugar
0.84 even though Sugar 0.86 had been released before our final release
happened, because we wanted a Sugar release that had seen more time
You should talk with OLPC directly about how to handle your particular
situation, but I expect that you'll need to update the machines with
your translations when they arrive; we can give you some pointers on
how to do that.
