I've heard that there was some issue for making a link at tx.net. Docs 
team has been required to learn Tx and move their documentation to 
within very short time frame, thus it is not hard to imagine that book 
owners have experienced the hardest time. So I echo your concern 
completely that F15 has less documentation localized than F14.
Good new is that the release note now should be appeared under Fedora 
Documentation.

Indeed, it will be nice if l10n team can be notified by docs team when 
especially release note is ready for translation. Besides, it also is 
encouraged that translators join #fedora-docs channel on freenode to 
discuss any concern.

This is left for docs team to answer...

What does 'package' refers to?
Software translation deadline was over. Any  string freeze break should 
be reported.
For publican, there is Publican User Guide. This might help.

This should be able to fix by Transifex team once tx client is released.

Sometime ago, I read the post in docs lists, which said that this guide 
owner have had no time for F15 and looked for help. I am just guessing 
that this guide might be given up for F15.
