Call for Maverick Language Pack Update Testing
Friday, March 18, 2011
We’ve just uploaded fresh language packs in the maverick-proposed repository for testers to check before they are released to all users. These should contain all updates and fixes in translations done since the last language pack update.
I’d like to ask for your help in testing them and in providing an indication that the test has been done. You can do this very easily by following the instructions here:
The deadline for the testing is the 25th of March (in a week’s time). After that, we’ll update the language packs we’ve received feedback for into maverick-updates, so that all users can benefit from the new translations and fixes.

Note that I can’t automatically fix packages for people who already upgraded to the broken PPA version; they will need to purge the packages (-base as well) and reinstall them.
If you are not using the language packs PPA, you shouldn’t need to worry about this.
