Thanks for the prompt action. Though in fact, I'm not simply worrying
about my own, but about all translations as a whole. Gstreamer is still
under very active development and everybody is busy with codes,
thus only a very small subset of developers may be able to devote
some limited time on handling translation updates.

What I was thinking about, is that such laborious work can be delegated
to a translator who already has existing gstreamer cvs access, so
developers can be freed from such small duties, yet bringing
satisfaction to translators that their work is indeed useful.

Of course, this is just an idea, so whether anything further would be
done depends on justification of work load and cvs access policies.
