I hope the Translation Team can expect to hear regular direct
communication from the Release Manager on the Localization list (and
not just forwards from me).  This is important in creating an
atmosphere in which the localizers are appropriately acknowledged and
engaged as full stakeholders in the release process.

I will do my usual bit in poking lang admins and the like, but I feel
very strongly about direct communication to the localizers from the
Development team as an important element of binding these two
communities together in common goals.

We'll also need to begin making plans for a proper freeze and
branching on Pootle (*coff* dirakx).  That never really happened for
0.90 and while there is a Fructose 0.84 and a Fructose, it is a little
unclear which would be used by someone making an 0.92 build.

Hopefully we can work together to minimize any possible confusions
going forward.
