I found gnome-packagekit strings very well commented. Some comments were
quite funny too! If I find any bad strings I'll mail the list.

Speaking as a translator, having a fixed release schedule is really

to know everyone's release method. A couple days of string freeze also
helps to get things done but that's an extra. It's good news for me.
